As if Singapore roads and sidewalks are not crowded enough, Beam, a company co-founded by former Asian Chief for ofo has managed to raise S$8.84 million from investors to deploy its electric scooters around Singapore.

It is reported that Beam will roll out its services in the coming weeks. They also plan to roll out the e-scooter service in Malaysia, Australia and South Korea. Beam said that customers have to pay $1 to start with the service, which will then cost 15cents a minute for the use, with no depostis required. Customers can locate the e-scooters and unlock them by using their phones. 

With Singapore already facing issues with rental bikes, where indiscriminate parking and lack of space for parking is a big issue, this e-scooter initiative will only add to more of such issues.
