The expansion of Bout to France takes place within the framework of the collaboration between EIT Urban Mobility and Moove Lab, a reference accelerator for mobility start-ups located at Station F in Paris. 

During 2023, Bout will offer its service to towns located along the Seine, a river which connects Troyes, Paris, Rouen and Le Havre. By using the Seine as a circulation channel, the objective is to improve the mobility of people based in the cities bordered by the river, centralising the local offer of river transportation. By settling in Paris, Bout is targeting an important river market which is still little exploited while having high numbers of tourists and inhabitants. 

Bout is also preparing the ground for nautical mobility in the run-up to the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. Utilising water mobility can allow traffic to flow more smoothly in the city and have people avoid being subject to traffic jams.
