Whether taking a quick roundtrip, or in need of a vehicle for that summer road trip, Moovit users in France, Germany, United Kingdom and Belgium can now discover Getaround carsharing in the Moovit app
Paris- July 2021
Getaround, the world’s leading digital connected carsharing marketplace, is announcing a global partnership with Moovit, an Intel company, a leading Mobility as a Service (MaaS) provider and creator of the #1 urban mobility app. The partnership, cruising into four European countries, enables Moovit users to discover Getaround carsharing in the free Moovit app for more mobility alternatives that save time and reduce the need for a private car for short or long distance journeys. This is Moovit’s biggest global partnership with a carsharing provider.
The freedom to choose the most preferred mode of travel in one app is now available to millions of European residents, thanks to Getaround’s partnership with Moovit. The complementary mobility companies — Getaround, a leading carsharing platform active in over 850 cities across eight countries, and Moovit, which has guided over a billion users in getting to their destination using any mode of transport in over 450 cities across Europe — will enable Moovit users to discover Getaround cars in the Moovit app. Offering more shared mobility options will help users more easily plan the most convenient journeys.
This offering is available in:
“Joining forces with Moovit is a huge step forward for the democratisation of carsharing, and makes it even more accessible for millions of people in many key cities,” said Simon Baldeyrou, COO of Getaround Europe. “Moovit’s expertise in guiding people towards the best mobility solutions, combined with our very broad supply and fully connected user experience, empowers city dwellers in their everyday diverse commuting needs. We’re very happy to implement this integration with such a leading MaaS (Mobility as a Service) company, bringing multimodality to the forefront.”
“We are excited to partner with Getaround and make getting around frictionless for more people — for both short and long distance journeys across Europe,” said Samuel Sed Piazza, Director of Partnerships at Moovit. “Enabling people to find all modes of transport via one app makes getting around much easier and will help shift them from using private cars to instead using public and shared transport services.”
Getaround’s digital carsharing solution enables users to find, book, and unlock a wide variety of vehicles directly from the Getaround app 24/7, without needing to meet anyone in person, carry an access card, wait in line, or coordinate picking up keys. This fully digital and contactless rental experience meets the demand for more convenient and cost-effective mobility solutions closer to where people live and work, and has been especially relevant in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, offering flexibility and peace of mind.
Moovit’s free iOS, Android, and Web apps guide people in getting around town effectively and conveniently, using any mode of transport. By combining information from public transport operators and authorities with live information from the user community, Moovit offers travelers a real-time picture, including the best route for the journey, with urban mobility options like bus, train, metro, ride-hailing, carpooling, scooters, bikes, and now Getaround’s carsharing services.
Moovit provides users real-time arrival information so they know exactly when their bus or train is arriving, a Live Directions feature with Get Off Alerts to provide step-by-step guidance for the entire journey, and Service Alerts so they can avoid disruptions on usual lines and plan their journey accordingly. Moovit also incorporates accessibility features, empowering people across the disability spectrum to use public transport with more assurance. The app is optimised with screen reading features for low vision users, including TalkBack/VoiceOver capabilities, identifies wheelchair-accessible routes and stations, and calculates step-free routes. Moovit’s app is also designed with optimised menus and buttons for those with hand-motor disabilities.
