Ridecell Inc., the leading platform provider for shared mobility operators, announced that Groupe Renault is using the Ridecell High-yield Mobility Platform to power the new ZITY electric carsharing service in Paris. ZITY first launched its carsharing service in Madrid using the Ridecell technology platform with a fleet that has now expanded to 800 electric cars, rented up to 10x per day. The Ridecell platform enables ZITY customers to have an experience that is almost as easy as using a private vehicle, including contactless rental, payment, verification, and on-demand scheduling through the app.
Javier Mateos, CEO of ZITY commented that, transportation is changing as the world experiences enormous disruptions and transformations and working with Ridecell has helped them to stay agile through the challenging time. They launched the service during the early phases of the pandemic and initially reconfigured the service to offer discounted, clean and safe rides for medical workers and the Red Cross. The Ridecell platform helped them to respond to their customer’s needs so that they could be there for them no matter what may come.
The ZITY France carsharing fleet comprises of 500 five-seater Renault ZOE free-floating electric vehicles in Paris and Clichy. The ZITY service takes full advantage of the Ridecell platform, including end-to-end automation, instant driver verification, payment processing, on-demand scheduling, and custom analytics. Customers can use the ZITY app to easily reserve, access, and return vehicles at any time of day or night.
Aarjav Trivedi, CEO of Ridecell stated that, their collaboration with ZITY in Madrid had been an overwhelming success, and they are excited to continue the partnership as they expand their service in France. Keeping fleets operational and optimized was the key to profitability. Their high-yield mobility platform helped mobility companies to run efficient and delightful services, so companies like ZITY could continue to grow and succeed.
