We will no longer see bicycles or self-service white and purple scooters in Toulouse. Indigo Weel, present in the pink city since 2018, and the only operator of its kind authorized by the Métropole of Toulouse, announces that January 18 will be “unable to resume activities” in Toulouse, Balma, Colomiers and Tournefeuille.
The operator suffered a violent fire in mid-December which destroyed its operational base and its stock of lithium batteries in Colomiers (Haute-Garonne). In a statement on Tuesday, the group is part of a “detailed impact analysis“which motivated this choice.
New operators soon in Toulouse
30,000 Toulouse residents use this service, which covers a fleet of 600 bicycles and 500 self-service electric scooters. A campaign of automated refund will open in a few weeks for customers with a balance of credit. The terms will be communicated to them by mail.
The staff who worked until then will be reclassified in the workforce of Indigo Toulouse, and with the new operators who will settle in Toulouse, on the other hand. “Discussions in this direction are under way“, assures Indigo Weel.
Indigo Weel left in 2020 from Lyon then from Bordeaux.
