Uber Technologies Inc's European rival, Bolt, on Wednesday launched an electric bike-sharing service in Paris, and said it would expand the offering to more European capitals this year.

Ride-hailing service Bolt also offers scooter rental and food delivery.

"Our new e-bike sharing service will help to fulfil the demand for light, green individual modes of transport, which has seen growth due to European cities gradually coming out of Covid-19 lockdown," Dmitri Pivovarov, unit head at Bolt, said in a statement.
