Uber has announced that Cityscoot e-mopeds will be available to book and pay for directly in the Uber app in Paris.
This is the first time Uber has offered e-mopeds in its app anywhere in the world. Cityscoot has 4,000 available e-mopeds in the French capital.
Billy Guernier, Uber’s Head of New Mobility Platform, says: “The integration of Cityscoot in the Uber app shows how we can become a one stop-shop for all your mobility needs while giving Cityscoot the opportunity to reach new customers. We are proud to help a local player – leader on its market and recognized as a national champion by French government – grow faster and further expand in Europe.”
Cityscoot CEO Bertrand Fleurose adds: “Our partnership with Uber complements their offer and allows us to get further visibility among their wide rider-base. With the convenience and ease of use of our e-mopeds, I trust this will result in additional trips. The strength of the Uber platform will contribute to our expansion in France and beyond, and will boost our growth.”
As well as Paris, Cityscoot also operates in Nice, Rome and Milan.
