Helbiz Continues its US Micromobility Expansion

Helbiz is continuing to expand its micromobility operations across the US by providing shared e-scooters in Tampa, Florida as well as increasing its fleets in Flint, Michigan and Miami Lakes, Florida.

Helbiz has been selected as a new operator for Tampa’s micromobility programme, following the city’s decision to phase out current standing e-scooters operated by Bird and Lime. Initially, Helbiz will launch 1,500 e-scooters throughout Tampa. Each e-scooter will be equipped with sidewalk detection using onboard computer vision.

In addition to standing e-scooters, Helbiz will offer a three-wheeled sit-down scooter and a wheelchair attachment, providing riders in Tampa with a range of safe, accommodating, and reliable micromobility options.

Salvatore Palella, Helbiz CEO said:

“We’re thrilled to launch our newest electric vehicles and continue expanding our presence across the US. At Helbiz, we pride ourselves on being the best partners to local governments, which means meeting each city’s needs while prioritising safety and accessibility. With each new market, we build on our goal of changing how the world moves by getting people out of their cars and onto electric micromobility vehicles.”

Meanwhile, Helbiz will be doubling and upgrading its fleet in Miami Lakes, where it has operated since 2021. The new fleet will include the company’s latest e-bike, which features GPS technology that can identify no-ride zones and slow riders down in designated areas. Each e-bike is also equipped with a Shimano 3-speed hub for improved energy efficiency and a front basket with a phone holder.

Furthermore, Helbiz will expand its e-scooter and e-bike fleet in Flint, where its vehicles will now be available at the University of Michigan-Flint campus. In addition, Helbiz is partnering with Kuhmute, a multi-modal charging network for micromobility, to ensure its vehicles remain reliably charged.
