Partnership Establishes a First-of-Its-Kind Offering for Beep’s Autonomous Mobility Networks
Lake Nona, Fla. – May 10, 2022
Beep, a provider of multi-passenger, electric, autonomous mobility solutions, and Moovit, an Intel company and leading Mobility as a Service (MaaS) solutions provider, announced a partnership to advance Beep’s autonomous offerings for riders with Moovit’s capabilities that allow passengers to hail an autonomous shuttle within Beep’s autonomous mobility networks. The collaboration will provide customers with an even more predictable, safer, and sustainable form of alternative mobility with the Moovit On-Demand capabilities.
The Moovit app will be available to riders in Lake Nona, a 17-square mile master-planned community and advanced district in the City of Orlando, providing a more efficient mobility journey, including shortened wait times, and greater insight into their AV ride and beyond. Since September 2019, Beep has safely carried more than 50,000 passengers in Lake Nona, the largest and longest-running autonomous shuttle network at one location in the United States, connecting residential, commercial, retail, recreational, and medical services.
“Lake Nona is a great example of a smart and connected community that is achieving innovative mobility initiatives with the right partners. The combination of Moovit’s consumer interface and on-demand solution, coupled with Beep’s AV fleet, is a powerful one. It has the potential to expand ever more into Lake Nona and other cities in the U.S. to solve first and last-mile challenges,” said Uli Gal-Oz, Moovit Vice President of Business Development.
Beep will implement Moovit’s ride-hailing capabilities in additional project areas across the country including Tradition, a master-planned community by Mattamy Homes in Port Saint Lucie, Florida, and additional services areas with multiple routes.
“Moovit’s ride-hailing capabilities combined with Beep’s first and last-mile autonomous service will empower riders to more conveniently access key destinations in the communities we serve. This partnership will allow Beep to present a more responsive service to our passengers, further expanding access to our shuttle service to all passengers,” said Clayton Tino, Beep Chief Technology Officer.
