This partnership is bound by each of the companies’ commitment to environmental sustainability, and the MiMoto service provides a practical, economical and green method of shared transportation to quickly move from one point to another. The service is accessible through the MiMoto app, available for iOS and Android. E-mopeds can be found and booked through the application interface, with rides costing €0.35 per minute, €14.90 per hour or €59 for the whole day. Each e-moped can hold two passengers, and is equipped with two helmets, sanitizer, disposable hygienic caps and self-drying helmet foam for riders to access before and after each trip.
"Micro-mobility solutions encourage the reduction of traffic and emissions in Tigullio and have proven over the last year to be a great success," said President of the Liguria Region Giovanni Toti. "We are pleased to bring the e-mopeds back to the area, one that is so important for tourism in our region. We strive to implement green and environmentally friendly policies, and through the use of electric vehicles Liguria will continue to be at the forefront."
"Through its effectiveness, practicality and sustainability, MiMoto is the perfect service for transportation between the cities that overlook the Gulf of Tigullio," said Matteo Tanzilli, Head of Institutional Relations at Helbiz. "There is no better solution to facilitate short and medium-range travel in popular tourist areas that also allows a reduction in traffic congestion."
"This partnership continues to position us as leaders in the mobility sharing services sector across Liguria," said Gianluca Bufo, CEO of Iren Luce Gas e Servizi. "We are proud to be a provider of 100% green energy produced in the group's hydroelectric plants. In addition, we have decided to convert all of our domestic supplies into green energy at no additional cost for new and existing customers across the city. This way, we can help the environment from our homes, while also experiencing our cities in a fun, safe and sustainable way."
"Telepass has chosen MiMoto to integrate the electric moped sharing mobility service into its Telepass Pay app, a digital platform of integrated services that continues to grow," said Luca Daniele, CEO of Telepass Pay. "Our mission is to ease people's lives through a new mobility experience, and this partnership with MiMoto allows shared mobility for sustainable, easy and fast transportation. We are aligned with the urban electric mobility provider that contributes to making the city more livable and less congested by traffic, to bring all of these advantages to the large tourist area of Portofino and the Gulf of Tigullio."
