Helbiz-Telepass: new joint venture for e-scooters
Telepass Pay will now feature Helbiz electric scooter service.
Milano, January 2019 — the brand new joint venture between Helbiz and Telepass is focused on developing the future of mobility.
The new partnership will allow riders to rent and pay HELBIZ’s e-scooters through Telepass Pay, the innovative APP that allows users to pay for parking, fuel and many other mobility related costs.
To access Helbiz service through Telepass Pay, the user will simply open the Telepass Pay APP and accept Helbiz terms and conditions. All within one easy application. For each completed ride, the user will be able to visualize the transaction — without any added costs — directly on Telepass Pay app.
Luca Mazzetta, Helbiz country manager for Italy states “Helbiz integration within the Telepass Pay app is an additional step towards Telepass vision: continue to develop and improve its offering in order to guarantee full access to smart-mobility services that are increasingly efficient, safe and user friendly. The ability to avail of a successful platform, such is that of Telepass Pay, that has already establish itself as a leader within the mobility world truly represents, for Helbiz, a way to render accessible its new and innovative way of personal transportation”.
The deal between Helbiz and Telepass, which is set to go live soon, will allow Telepass Pay users to forego the unlocking cost ( valued at 1 euro per ride) paying solely for the ride’s tariff, set at .15 c per minute. The goal of the two groups is to avail all of a new, green and easy way of transferring within busy city centers. With a single Telepass account, users in Milan and all cities where the service is available, will be able to access ZTL areas, pay for ‘blue line’ parking and rent Helbiz e-scooters to complete their last commuting mile.
