A year after its launch on 2 February 2017, the Free2Move app today boasts 600,000 users worldwide and over 30 key partners.
The app allows users to identify a range of nearby mobility services, helping them find a shared car, scooter or bike. After comparing features, price and location, users can access the vehicle of their choice for immediate use or reserve it for future use.
The Free2Move mobility services platform brings together the services of some 30 global operators available in the United States and 9 European countries – France, Germany, Spain, Italy, the United Kingdom, Sweden and Austria, with Belgium and Portugal as 2 additional countries where the Free2Move app has just been launched.
Brigitte Courtehoux, Executive Vice President of Mobility & Connectivity Services, Groupe PSA, said: “We are proud to have 600,000 users on the first anniversary of our mobility services app. Free2Move aims to make life and mobility easier for everyone, our solution to our customers’ needs is proving highly successful. This is just the beginning, as we are continuing to roll out new services in Europe and the United States after Seattle last October, with the aim of becoming a major player in international mobility services.”
