"We are happy to see the continued interest from citizens towards our micro-mobility service across Cesena," said Luca Santambrogio, Country Manager of Helbiz. "Cesena, like other Italian cities in the last year, has undertaken an important change that will lead it to revolutionize its transportation options thanks to our efficient and sustainable means. The bikes complete our offering, making our service a full intermodal transportation solution."

These vehicles join the existing fleet of 200 e-scooters that have been on the ground since July 2020. Since the start of the scooter service, 90K rides have already been made, and a total of over 160K kilometers have been traveled, which corresponds to a CO2 savings of more than 282Kkg.

The operational area of bikes and scooters is 17 km2 and extends from the historic center to the districts of Sant'Egidio, Villa Chiaviche and Ponte Abbadesse. The rate for renting bikes is €0.25 for the initial unlock + €0.07 per minute for the ride. Users can also subscribe to Helbiz UNLIMITED at a cost of €29.99 per month, which offers an unlimited number of daily trips lasting 30 minutes (at least 20 minutes apart) and access to the service through Telepass Pay with 30 minutes of free trips.

Users can easily access e-bikes and e-scooters through the Helbiz mobile app on Android and iOS, by locating the nearest vehicle on a geo-referenced map and unlocking it by scanning a QR code located on the handlebars. Starting today, users within the Romagna municipality can easily choose the means of transport they prefer according to their travel needs.
