Low-speed electric vehicles in the Old Town
The City of Krakow cares for constant improvement of the quality standards of the public space in the historical center and the safety of tourists. From 2018, regulations concerning transport provided using low-speed electric vehicles became applicable. These services in the Old Town can only be provided using vehicles with a fixed color scheme (body in dark beige color, and other elements in black or transparent) for which the identifiers (ID) were issued. The ID in the form of a rectangular sticker with a burgundy border, are placed in the lower right corner of the vehicle's windshield, give the name of the company and vehicle identification number, and are protected against forgery with a special hologram.
As a result of this year's contest, IDs received 60 vehicles. All qualified vehicles are new, the oldest ones were produced in March 2018. All of them have also been checked in terms of technical efficiency. These vehicles are equipped in accordance with the regulations and standards: seat belts for each seat, brakes and lighting.
Transporting people in the Old Town area with a slow-moving electric vehicle that does not have a valid ID is forbidden and is an offense. Persons using such vehicles must take into account the possibility of intervention by the City Guard or the Police against the driver. Therefore, guests visiting Krakow are advised to use the offer of travel only with vehicles with valid IDs in Old Town area.
