  • Your safety, other people and surroundings are our priority together with correct parking with Happy City®. As a Norwegian company, safety and people are our first and highest priority! SparkPark has launched the new and patented system Happy City® that organizes parking of electric scooters to designated parking spaces, optimizing micromobility in cities. Electric scooters that lie on the pavement and block the way for pedestrians, lying in flower beds, or are floating at the bottom of the river, etc. Does it sound familiar? The Happy City® solution is designed to solve this problem. Happy City® is a solution with patented IoT technology that makes it possible to identify whether an electric scooter is parked within a marked parking zone for electric scooters.

WHERE TO RIDE AND ENJOY SPARKPARK

To ensure that scooters is a service that users and society accept we need to get the parking under control. Without a parking system this green micromobility will not be able to exist in the cities with other form of transport and pedestrians. As well as respecting country-specific laws and learning the basics, safe scooter riding is all about being mindful of your surroundings when you’re on the move. One thing to keep in mind is that cities typically have three designated areas, each with their own scooter rules.

HAPPY CITY PARKING AREAS

Parking has never been more easy! These are the only areas where you’re allowed to park. You can not end the trip if you are not inside the Happy City area. If you do not park the scooter inside our system, the trip is not ended and your account will still be running and payment is not finished. The whole city is a No-parking Zone, and only inside Happy City parking spots are the only places to end the ride correctly.

SLOW ZONES

These are typically tourist or historic locations with a high density of people. We deliberately limit your scooter’s maximum speed in these areas to ensure that everyone can use the space safely.

NO-RIDE ZONES

These are areas where riding a scooter is prohibited at all times. This is for your safety, other inhabitants and surroundings.

OUTSIDE RIDING ZONE

It is against the rules to ride a Sparkpark outside the Zone. This is regulated by the authorities and operating area and your scooter will come to a complete stop.

RIDE SAFE WITH SPARKPARK

Your safety, other people and surroundings are our priority together with correct parking with Happy City. A ride with Sparkpark scooters is safe and our scooters are the newest. Here are some of our top safety tips for a safe ride! As a Norwegian company, safety and people are our first and highest priority!

We advise bringing a helmet with you and wearing it while riding.

18+ only

Be aware!

Check for traffic, surroundings, and pedestrians around you and start off slowly. Never text and drive.

Don`t drink and drive!

Never ride e-scooters while drunk or otherwise intoxicated. It is extremely unsafe for you and others, and it’s even considered a criminal act in most European countries. Driving a scooter while under the influence of alcohol or other substances is highly illegal and strictly prohibited. Doing so will result in a fine and/or your permanent blocking from using Sparkpark services.

Respect traffic rules

Follow streets signs and rules while riding.

Respect other citizens and user of the streets

Do not ride on pavements, use bike lanes when possible. Give way to pedestrians.

Only one person on one scooter

Do not put yourself and your friends in unnecessary danger. Always ride alone! It is both illegal and unsafe to ride a scooter with another person.

SPARKPARK SUSTAINBILITY

Sparkpark is built on a vision of cities made for living, free from noise and pollution. But without a functional parking solution this micromobility will not be able to exist with other forms of transport, this is our DNA. We are a partner for cities and communities to champion a transition towards shared, multimodal and zero-emission mobility.
