This new partnership will see the integration of Cooltra’s e-mopeds into Cabify’s multi-mobility ecosystem, providing zero-emission mobility options to people across Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia.
Cabify has announced that it has reached an agreement with Cooltra to offer its moped rental service through Cabify’s app, as a joint commitment to continue promoting zero-emission urban mobility alternatives. This mobility option is now available via the Cabify app, in the ‘Moped’ category, where both companies’ motorbikes will appear, differentiated by colours.
Due to this collaboration, Cabify users will have more mopeds available in both Madrid and Barcelona. In Madrid, Cooltra has nearly 2,000 vehicles available, which will add to Cabify’s 1,200 mopeds in the city. In addition, in Barcelona, the volume of mopeds has doubled in the app, as each scooter-sharing company has 632 authorisations.
Furthermore, this agreement also includes making motorbikes available on the Cabify app in a new city, as Cooltra’s more than 700 mopeds in Valencia will also be available to Cabify users.
In order to access this service, new users will have to upload the necessary driving documents to the Cabify app, choose the ‘Moped’ category and select the one that they want on the map to start travelling.

Lucía Chávarri, Vice President of New Business at Cabify, said: “We are happy to announce the integration of Cooltra’s electric mopeds into Cabify‘s multi-mobility ecosystem. Two Spanish companies are joining forces to provide sustainable zero-emission mobility to millions of users. Moreover, this journey together allows us to go even further, significantly increasing the number of mopeds available to our users in Barcelona and Madrid. All of that, while opening a new city like Valencia. All this brings us closer to a common goal – to make cities better places to live.”
“With this collaboration, we want to have more presence in multi-mobility applications with the aim of continuing to grow Cooltra’s two million users. In addition, we offer a different experience through our vehicles, lighter and with a larger wheel diameter. This way, app users will be able to have more than one model of moped to suit their tastes and needs, as well as making more vehicles available for them to get around the city without polluting,” said Timo Buetefisch, CEO and Co-Founder of Cooltra.
Both platforms aim to bring users closer to safer and accessible mobility with their offer of electric mopeds. This way, people and companies committed to the environment and the reduction of emissions have a sustainable urban mobility alternative at their disposal. Throughout 2022, Cabify has avoided the emission of around 300 tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere due to its electric mopeds. For its part, Cooltra has contributed to saving more than 8,000 tonnes of CO2 since it has launched its service for the first time in Spain seven years ago.
Beyond this agreement, both companies will continue to work independently on developing their services with the common goal of offering zero-emission mobility solutions to citizens, to move around sustainably.
