The Free2Move application was designed to facilitate users’ mobility experience. It provides centralised access to the services of several car-sharing operators via a single application which brings together several types of transport solutions. The user can therefore view on a single screen all the nearby vehicles that are available for travel via car, scooter or bicycle. The user can compare prices, the location and the features of the available car-sharing means of transport (brand, number of seats, energy type) for immediate use or to make a reservation.
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.
This launch represents the achievement of the Group’s ambition to become a major player in mobility services on a global scale through its Free2Move brand. According to Frost & Sullivan, the number of users of car-sharing services worldwide should grow by a factor of 4.5 in ten years with an increase from eight to 36 million people between 2015 and 2025.
To mark this occasion, Grégoire 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. This is possible, first and foremost, thanks to all our partners who provide new types of mobility. The Free2Move app provides real freedom of movement in one click!”
