Vivian Myrtetus, Head of Partnerships and Policy at Helbiz, said:

“We are thrilled to expand our micro-mobility offerings to include Wheels seated devices, a design highly sought after by riders. Wheels’ seated design and integrated smart helmet allows us to service a wider range of users including those with limited mobility. We look forward to the future of this partnership that will expand our product offerings and provide riders with more last-mile options that fit their needs.”

Wheels devices will be available to unlock, rent and ride through the Helbiz App, where users will be introduced to this new transportation option in select markets. Wheels devices will also be managed by local Helbiz operations teams.

Will Sowers, Director of Public Affairs at Wheels, said:

“The partnership between Wheels and Helbiz is a natural fit. With their deployment of technology like helmet verification selfies, we both have a commitment to safety in our DNA, and we have observed their effective operations first-hand in some of today’s hottest markets like Miami and Miami Lakes. As a trailblazer in the space and the first publicly traded micro-mobility company, Helbiz makes an ideal partner to help Wheels further our mission to make micro-mobilty safe and accessible for all.”
