BeRider e-scooter sharing service from SKODA AUTO DigiLab expands fleet for the coming season

Jarmila Plachá, Head of ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab added, “By offering BeRider, we are continuing to promote an intelligent ecosystem for sustainable micromobility in collaboration with the capital, Prague. In addition, we will continue to develop and offer numerous other services in 2020, such as the private peer-to-peer car sharing service, HoppyGo, and the Uniqway car sharing service for students – developed together with schools and students. We are integrating all of these services into the Citymove app, which takes public transport into consideration when suggesting routes. Our vision is to offer all of these services in a Simply Clever way by providing customers with a centralised method of booking and paying for them.”

Over the next few months, the service’s fleet will grow from 150 to a total of 700 e-scooters and the scooters are now available over a larger area of the city of Prague. BeRider is breaking new ground with regards to customer service too, by enabling users to report any problems directly via the app.

Two lithium-ion batteries power the e-scooters, and LED headlights as well as front and rear brake discs enable users to make headway safely and efficiently in urban traffic.

What’s more, e-scooter riders can enjoy the city from a completely new perspective. Bookings are made via a smartphone using the BeRider app, which is available free of charge for iOS and Android. Following registration, customers can then see available e-scooters in the app and reserve as well as lock or unlock them without keys. BeRider can now also be used with the help of the free Citymove app, which was developed by ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab too.
