Charlotte further expands Helbiz’s presence in the United States and will be the first city to see Helbiz’s adaptive vehicles
Helbiz (NASDAQ; HLBZ), a global leader in micro-mobility and the first company in its industry to be publicly listed on Nasdaq, today announced that it will be opening operations in Charlotte, NC, next month.
After an open call for proposals by the city, Helbiz has been granted a permit for up to 600 e-scooters. Helbiz will also be the first to bring adaptive vehicles to Charlotte, which will be one of the first cities in the country to offer these devices. These devices - a wheelchair attachment and a sit-down three-wheeled device - will expand the pool of people available to participate in micro-mobility.
“We’re thrilled to bring our e-scooters to Charlotte and further expand our presence in North Carolina,” said Vivian Myrtetus, Helbiz Head of Partnerships & Policy. “We also applaud the city’s focus on equity and accessibility and look forward to moving the industry forward with the introduction of the adaptive devices to allow more people to participate in micro-mobility.”
Helbiz will be hosting a safety event on Thursday, April 28th, at the All American Pub, 200 E Bland St, Charlotte, NC, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. to give scooter safety demos and introduce itself to the local community. At the event, Charlotte residents can:
- Get a first look at the Helbiz adaptive vehicles (wheelchair attachment and three-wheeled scooter)
- Learn more about the features of each device
- Receive a promo code for $5 off their first ride
