Hello, we are Scooty, we help you get around the city by letting you share a fleet of electric scooters that can be located and rented via a mobile application. You can rent our scooters by the minute and drive around in the Brussels Capital Region and the City of Antwerp. Our Scootys are fun to ride, easy to park and remarkably affordable. Please find in this section some information on the use of the Scooty service.
