Micromobility operator Superpedestrian has partnered with leading mobility app Moovit across more than 40 cities in eight countries.
Superpedestrian’s LINK e-scooters can now be located via the free Moovit app, with users able to compare the mode with other available transport options.
Riders will be provided with relevant information on the closest e-scooters, while the app will inform the users how long it will take to walk to available devices.
Fleets of shared LINK e-scooters are available in six European countries and 32 cities including Stockholm, Vienna, Lisbon, Rome, and Madrid.
Based in California, Superpedestrian has staff based in a further four countries as part of its plans to expand.
“Shared micromobility is becoming an increasingly integral part of urban transportation systems, especially as a first and last mile solution for public transit users,” said Jamie Perkins, director of communications at Superpedestrian.
“It’s important to us that scooters are a solution to replace car trips and complement other modes of transit. Collaborating with Moovit is an obvious necessity to ensure riders can choose their best route. Moovit has been a wonderful partner to work with and we look forward to continuing our work to connect communities sustainably, efficiently and affordably.”
Moovit also has partnerships with Europe-based micromobility firms including Spin, Lime, TIER, and Helbiz.
Yovav Meydad, chief growth and marketing officer at Moovit, added: “Offering more alternative options that can easily get people to their destinations is a critical component of a MaaS platform, which is why we are excited about our expansion with Superpedestrian.
“The partnership will offer users the ability to travel sustainably, whether for the entire journey or by using LINK e-scooters in combination with public transit, furthering our mission to decrease congestion and pollution.”
