Telepass x Helbiz | Partnership
The past week Helbiz could proudly present one of its largest partners, Telepass, the multi-billion dollar transportation ecosystem and largest operator of toll-booths, highways and parking in Europe, with 6million monthly paying customers through its mobile application for transportation services.
Helbiz will going forward make its entire fleet of Scooters and Bikes directly available and rentable from within the Telepass app putting the Helbiz inventory directly in the hands of 6million active European users every day growing the visibility and reach significantly.
