Transport Helbiz integrates its app with the Wetaxi service

(Finance) – Helbiz, the company that manages shared scooters, bicycles and electric scooters, has signed one partnership with Wetaxi, one of the main operators in the sector in Italy. The collaboration will allow Helbiz users to book taxis directly from the application, knowing immediately the maximum fare.

In 2020, Wetaxi connects over 23% of taxi operators in Italy and expects to reach half of the market within the next two years. The service is available in over 20 Italian cities including Rome, Milan, Naples and Turin. Users will be able to know, from the moment of booking, the maximum price associated with the ride, to ensure easier planning thanks to the Guaranteed Rate service offered by Wetaxi. In addition, passengers can choose between multiple payment methods and book shared routes with their friends. To date there are 6 thousand drivers registered in the Wetaxi service. Users will be able to use their current Helbiz account to book a taxi and pay for the service with the method they prefer. The integration in the app will be released in the coming months.

“Helbiz’s goal is to allow anyone to have their city at their fingertips,” he said Salvatore Palella, CEO and founder of Helbiz -. This partnership with WeTaxi will broaden our offering and expand our customer base by helping them use our entire service ecosystem. In a city like Milan, a Helbiz user will be able to access micro-mobility, taxi, food-delivery, live streaming, leasing and insurance policies in an integrated way directly from a single app. A broader reach and an ever-expanding user base will benefit Helbiz Media and our entire advertising system, driving us towards growing profitability. “

“Wetaxi has always been characterized by attention to the mobility of the youngest, who are often looking for accessible and widespread smart transport – he explains Massimiliano Curto, CEO of Wetaxi – this partnership wants to go in this direction: taxi drivers and taxi cooperatives with which we collaborate will thus have a connection with a public normally distant from this service. A young target, which normally does not use our service assiduously and which, thanks to this partnership, will be able to enjoy a transparent and safe service, which can be used easily from their smartphone “.
