PSA Group has launched the Free2Move app which provides access to car-sharing services from approximately twenty operators in five European countries.
The app is the first step in their strategy to become a leading provider of Mobility-as-a-service (Maas).
GrÃ©goire Olivier, Head of PSA Group’s Mobility Services, stated: "The Free2Move application simplifies our customers’ mobility experience by offering them solution choices through an intuitive platform.
The Free2Move application provides centralised access to the services of several car-sharing operators (Car2Go, DriveNow, eMio, Coup, Multicity, etc.) via a single application which brings together several types of transport solutions (one-way, round trip, peer-to-peer providers of cars and scooters).
The smartphone application is available in several cities in Germany, Italy, Austria, Sweden and the United Kingdom. It will soon be offered in France, Spain and the Netherlands. It is free and available on the App Store, Play Store and Windows Phone.
According to marker research from Frost & Sullivan, the number of users of car-sharing services worldwide should grow by a factor of 4.5 in 10 years with an increase from 8 to 36 million people between 2015 and 2025.
