The shared e-scooters service operated by Mint was launched in Bratislava on July 22. During the first week of operation, half of them were stolen, the Trend weekly reported.

The Slovak company Softgate offered 50 e-scooters to users in the Slovak capital. Exactly one half of them, i.e. 25, were stolen. Trend also published photos of two men who are believed to have been involved in the theft of the e-scooters during the day.
