Helbiz is providing the Italian city of Pescara with additional micromobility offerings through the deployment of 100 MiMoto electric mopeds. 

Mayor of Pescara Carlo Masci says: “This launch of MiMoto e-mopeds supports our continued commitment to enhance modern mobility and reduce pollution, while benefiting our citizens and the social and economic system of our city.”

The MiMoto app allows users to rent the e-mopeds for €0.26 per minute, €4.90 per hour or €19.90 for the whole day. Each vehicle can carry two passengers and is equipped with two helmets, disposable hygienic caps and a sanitising foam for self-drying helmets.

The deployment area will also include the neighbouring cities of Montesilvano, Francavilla and San Giovanni Teatino.

It follows a roll out of 500 Helbiz e-scooters last July, which the company insists has seen more than 10,000 rides with an average travelling distance of approximately 6.5km.

Luigi Albore Mascia, councillor for mobility of Pescara, says: "Sustainable mobility is the most important tool that our administration is using to improve the quality of life of citizens. Over the course of twenty-four months, we have created a virtuous system that will reward us in the years to come.”

Matteo Tanzilli, head of institutional relations at Helbiz in Italy, says: “Pescara is one of our busiest cities and its sustainability conscious population rents our vehicles daily.”
