Bike sharing company ioscoot offers a convenient way of getting around with its fleet of electric motorbikes.

ioscoot’s fleet of electric motorcycles is currently available in St Julian’s, Sliema, Msida, and Valletta, although riders can travel beyond these zones.

Users can instantly book their motorbikes through the Meep app, and they may carry a second passenger. Helmets are provided in the luggage compartment for both riders.
