Enel X has expanded its cooperation with Bird by adding the company’s e-scooter service to their electric vehicle app to accelerate the adoption of e-mobility in Italy.
This means users of the Juicepass electric vehicle app will be able to access over 5,000 Bird electric scooters in different Italian cities, such as Turin, Rome, Milan, Verona, Rimini, and Pesaro.
Enel X JuicePass users will be redirected to the Bird app to book and use the scooters once the nearest ones have been identified on the map.
The app will also help users to identify the nearest available park station and charging.
The aim of this cooperation is to offer customers the option of a fully integrated mobility experience.
Alberto Piglia, the head of e-mobility at Enel X, said: “Our partnership with Bird allows us to offer JuicePass users a unique travel experience within cities and a valid alternative to traditional means of transport, thanks to which traffic flows in our cities can also be eased.
“By contributing to the spread of micro-mobility, we are including an additional element within Enel X’s strategy, which aims to continuously spread sustainable mobility globally.”
Christina Donofrio, the general manager at Bird in Italy, adds: “Our goal is to provide a last-mile solution that, when combined with EVs and public transport, makes cities more livable and safer for everyone”.
