Poppy adds scooters and mopeds to Brussels’ fleet
D’Ieteren’s mobility subsidiary, Poppy, becomes Europe’s first platform of shared mobility to offer free-floating cars, mopeds, and scooters. With around 1.000 vehicles available in Brussels and Antwerp, Poppy wants to reshape urban mobility.
“People wonder what to use to go from point A to point B. With Poppy, they have, for the first time, the possibility to find three different solutions of shared mobility on one single platform,” explains Valentin Haarscher, CEO of Poppy.
After already offering free-floating shared cars in Brussels and Antwerp for some time, D’Ieteren’s subsidiary decided to expand. First, Poppy introduced some e-mopeds in Antwerp with success. Then, more recently, that same city saw the arrival of the red scooters.
Both new mobility solutions are now available in Brussels as well. Depending on the means of transport, prices have been adapted. Users will pay 0,33 euros per minute to drive a car. Mopeds and scooters will respectively cost 0,25 euros/min and 0,15 euros/min. Activation cost stands at 1 euro.
“Shared mobility is something that attracts all generations. We see our platform as a real alternative to private cars because it offers the freedom to choose the solution that suits every need best,” adds the CEO. Valentin Haarscher also notes that the average Poppy user is 36 years old and rents a car for trips of around 8 to 10 kilometers.
