The eBike Revolution: Vulog and Zoov team up to accelerate the development of multimodal mobility services
The two French mobility industry innovators will integrate their technologies to provide operators with top-of-the-line electric bikes and facilitate the deployment of multimodal mobility services.
[PARIS, FRANCE, JULY 23, 2020] Vulog, the leading shared mobility technology provider, announced a new partnership with electric bike manufacturer and operator Zoov, expanding upon its expertise in shared mobility and multimodal travel. The partnership will enable the two French companies, both known for their innovation in the mobility industry, to diversify their offering to existing clients and potential prospects. The partnership enables Vulog clients to execute a seamless transition into the multimodal space, allowing users to combine the shared electric bike with other forms of transport (car, metro, etc.) within a single trip to arrive safely, efficiently, and sustainably, at their final destination.
“This new collaboration with Zoov allows us to advance the development of micromobility and multimodal services,” says Gregory Ducongé, CEO of Vulog. “We have now made it faster and simpler to establish an electric bike-sharing service, expanding the number of ways users can travel door-to-door and ultimately reduce traffic congestion and pollution in our cities.”
Zoov’s electric bikes will be integrated with Vulog’s AiMA (Artificial Intelligence Mobility Applied) platform so that they are ‘sharing ready,’ allowing operators to go multimodal faster than ever before. Vulog customers stand to benefit from Zoov electric bikes, which come with a compact parking station that allows up to 15 bikes to park in a single car parking spot.
“Since the inception of the company, we have been working on building the most reliable and sustainable electric bike-sharing service. Partnering with Vulog, we are now able to speed up the adoption of electric bikes as one of the main means of transport in European cities,” says Amira Haberah, Co-founder of Zoov.
The shared mobility movement is dedicated to reducing dependency on private vehicle ownership, and thereby mitigating congestion and pollution in cities. The electric bike is a critical part of the city mobility ecosystem as the majority of urban trips are less than 10 kilometers long. Perfectly adapted for trips of this distance, the electric bike ensures easy and sustainable travel.
Vulog builds the technology solutions that power the most successful shared mobility businesses in the world. It provides smart and flexible SaaS mobility solutions including advanced fleet management tools, consumer facing mobile applications and connected vehicle technology to launch large-scale fleets in three months.
Vulog acts as the catalyst enabling large mobility operators like WeShare (Volkswagen), Wible (Kia Motors), Free2Move (Groupe PSA), Aimo (Sumitomo Corporation) and Evo (British Columbia Automobile Association) as well as innovative startups such as Mol (MolGroup), Cabana, Poppy (D’Ieteren), to focus on sustained growth and profitability.
Founded in 2017 by serial entrepreneur Eric Carreel, Arnaud Le Rodallec and Amira Haberah, Zoov is the technological benchmark when it comes to self-service electric bikes in Europe, thanks to smart, effective, sturdy electric bikes, as well as a compact, economical parking and charging infrastructure. In addition to running its service in the south of Greater Paris and in Bordeaux, Zoov is making electric bikes more easily available in Europe by allowing other operators to incorporate their electric bikes into their mobility solutions, or to enhance their existing service thanks to its IoT technology and fleet management tools.
