May 25 2020 – As cities emerge from lockdown across France, the need for access to safe and sustainable transport is critical. BlaBlaCar has chosen to extend its offer and partner with Voi Technology to offer BlaBla Ride Scooters.
In the coming months, BlaBlaCar and Voi Technology will build a seamless integrated experience. BlaBlaCar’s 18 million members in France will be able to connect through their BlaBlaCar account on the BlaBla Ride app. Members will also be able to select a scooter to ride on the last mile of a longer carpool or bus trip, powering a convenient and environmentally efficient door-to-door journey. Together, through their complementary expertise and user bases, BlaBlaCar and Voi can help make scooters available and reliable across large French cities and provide a responsible service respectful of local regulations.
The first step of the partnership will consist in co-branding Voi’s app and scooters as BlaBla Ride, starting on June 5th. Current Voi users in France won’t face any significant changes other than Voi app and scooters progressively including the new BlaBla Ride brand identity.
BlaBlaCar’s multimodal offer now spans from long-distance carpooling (BlaBlaCar) and buses (BlaBlaBus), to carpooling on commuting distances (BlaBlaLines) and now intra-city micro-mobility with BlaBla Ride
