As French rail workers continue their rolling strikes against planned reforms, millions of passengers are looking for other ways to get around. In Paris, several private initiatives exist that allow commuters to rent an electric scooter or bicycle through an app on their smartphones. The vehicles can be found throughout the city and don't have to be hooked up to a dock after use. Our reporters take a look at whether this new model could offer a viable alternative to public transport.
A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett and Rebecca Martin.
