Residents in Gloucester, Cheltenham, and Yeovil will now be able to see Zwings’ e-scooters on Moovit’s Mobility as a Service (MaaS) app, following a new partnership.
Commuters can access multiple public and private transit services in the free Moovit app and will be able to access the micromobility option. The collaboration hopes this will reduce the need for a car for first and last mile trips.
“Providing Moovit users with a full suite of travel choices is essential to ensuring that public and shared transport is more attractive than using a private car,” said Luke Redfern, Moovit’s UK partnerships manager.
“It’s great to see organisations such as Zwings’ pioneering change to our mobility system and bringing e-scooters to UK towns and cities. This partnership means users have reliable, accurate and up-to-date information on the availability of Zwings’ vehicles at all times.”
By combining information from public transit operators and authorities with live information from the user community, Moovit is working to offers travellers a real-time picture, including the best route for the journey, service alerts, and get off notifications.
CEO of Zwings, Joe Lewin: “It is fantastic to have partnered with Moovit to provide wider, quicker access to a range of transport solutions at the tap of a button. From short trips across town via e-scooter to longer distance bus journeys we encourage our community to embrace the future of travel.”
