The Free2Move application provides access to car-sharing services from approximately 20 operators
Automotive manufacturer and mobility solutions company, the PSA Group, whose brands include Peugeot, Citroën and DS, is launching its mobility services platform through the Free2Move smartphone application.
The Free2Move app provides centralised access to the services of several car-sharing operators via a single application which brings together several types of transport solutions. The user can therefore view on a single screen all the nearby vehicles that are available for travel via car, scooter or bicycle.
They can compare prices, the location and the features of the available car-sharing means of transport (brand, number of seats, energy type) for immediate use or to make a reservation.
The service is available in several cities in Germany, Italy, Austria, Sweden and the UK and will soon be offered in France, Spain and the Netherlands.
This launch represents the achievement of the Group’s ambition to become a major player in mobility services on a global scale through its Free2Move brand. According to analysis by Frost & Sullivan, the number of users of car-sharing services worldwide should grow by a factor of 4.5 in 10 years with an increase from 8 to 36 million people between 2015 and 2025.
"The Free2Move application simplifies our customers’ mobility experience by offering them solution choices through an intuitive platform,” said Grégoire Olivier, head of PSA Group’s mobility services. “This is possible, first and foremost, thanks to all our partners who provide new types of mobility. The Free2Move app provides real freedom of movement in one click."
Created in September 2016, the PSA Group’s mobility brand brings together all the services for new mobility solutions of the PSA Group to answer the various transportation needs of its private and professional customers (car-sharing services, fleet management and multi-brand long-term leasing).
