MIAMI LAKES, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Helbiz Inc. (NASDAQ: HLBZ), a global leader in micro-mobility and the first in its industry to be publicly listed on Nasdaq, today announced that it will deploy a fleet of innovative e-scooters and e-bikes in Miami Lakes after securing a 1-year permit.
“We are thrilled to bring our sustainable e-scooters and e-bikes to Miami Lakes, a city that is working to implement environmentally sustainable and affordable transportation strategies,” said Gian Luca Spriano, Director of International Business Development at Helbiz. “Our electric vehicles will provide the community with alternative modes of transportation to help reduce the concerns of traffic congestion among residents and businesses in Miami Lakes.”
“The Town of Miami Lakes is looking forward to welcoming Helbiz as part of our Dockless Mobility Pilot Program 2021,” stated the Communications Department of Miami Lakes. “The project calls out for the integration of multiple types of devices to explore demand through our municipality. Our top priority by implementing such a program has been bringing the highest standards of safety measures. We are excited to look forward to the results of our program and to receiving the feedback from our community. For more information, you can contact Clarisell De Cardenas, Public Information Officer, at 305-364-6100 ext. 1132.”
To demonstrate its commitment to the safe adoption of micro-mobility solutions, Helbiz kicked off the launch of its vehicles in Miami Lakes by hosting a safety event for the local community this past weekend. The company plans to continue community engagement initiatives across Miami Lakes throughout the duration of its permit. This will also include the implementation of a local Helbiz Apprenticeship Program to provide career pathway opportunities in the high-demand micro-mobility industry, and discounted rides for low-income residents through the Helbiz Access Program.
Helbiz will employ a local team to run its operations on the ground, ensuring its fleet is charged, repaired and well-maintained. The nearest operations team member will be alerted if a device needs maintenance or has a low battery. As part of the company’s ongoing safety guidelines, each device will also be cleaned and disinfected regularly.
Users can download the Helbiz mobile app on iOS and Android to instantly geolocate, rent and unlock e-scooters for a flat fee of $1, followed by a $0.35 charge per minute of riding time. Helbiz also offers a subscription plan for $39.99 per month up to 30-minute per day. All pricing options are displayed to customers as soon as the Helbiz App is installed and open.
