FREENOW has announced that it has just expanded its micro-mobility offerings in the bustling streets of London. In a strategic move, FREENOW has now incorporated Voi Technology e-scooters into its list of mobility partners.

Voi, a prominent e-scooter and e-bike company, had made its debut in September 2023, marking the initiation of Phase 2 in the Transport for London (TfL) e-scooter trials. Voi’s collaboration with FREENOW has been a successful partnership that has launched across numerous European cities for several years. Now, Londoners can enjoy the convenience of its e-scooters through the FREENOW app.

The FREENOW app offers users a seamless experience in locating and hiring Voi e-scooters in London. In addition to displaying the available e-scooters, the app also highlights designated parking areas and no-go zones where e-scooters cannot be used.

To access a Voi e-scooter through the app, users need to only tap on the distinctive coral e-scooter icon featured on the London map. If it’s their first time using an e-scooter, they will be guided through the quick and straightforward process of signing up and verifying their age and identity using their driving license.

Emma Hughes, Senior Manager of Global Partnerships at Voi, said: “We hope that together with FREENOW, we’ll encourage more people to use our e-scooters to travel in London. Voi e-scooters are a safe, convenient, affordable and sustainable way of travelling, helping people to beat congestion and contribute to cleaner air.”

Mariusz Zabrocki, UK General Manager at FREENOW, said: “Currently, there are over 10 thousand e-bikes and e-scooters available to rent with a click of a button on the FREENOW app in Greater London, and we are delighted to add Voi e-scooters as part of this offer. E-scooters and e-bikes can be easily combined with the black cabs and private hire vehicles available on our platform or with existing public transport, providing a better alternative to private cars.”

Voi e-scooters and e-bikes are now accessible in the FREENOW app in more than 30 cities across Europe and the UK, including popular locations such as London, Oxford, Berlin, Frankfurt, Milan, Seville and Vienna.
