TORONTO and SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) November 06, 2019
Today, global micromobility software provider Joyride has unveiled a partnership with San Francisco-based mobility data platform Populus that enables all of its fleet operators to automatically deliver scooter and bike-share data to transportation officials in more than 50 cities worldwide.
Populus’ reporting platform will seamlessly integrate data from Joyride fleets efficiently and securely. In turn, cities can log into one single dashboard to gain real-time insights on how many scooters, bikes or vehicles are in operation, as well as manage incidents, set more flexible caps for dockless bike/scooter programs and make data-driven mobility policy and planning decisions.
The integration comes as Joyride upgrades its platform to enable any entrepreneur to launch his or her own fleet (regardless of size) within 24 hours, starting at $99/month. The company’s democratized approach to mobility is designed to let anyone capture the foreseeable $600-billion global micromobility market, and its partnership with Populus is equipping cities with the tools they need to better understand the landscape in light of mass adoption rates.
“Joyride’s partnership with Populus falls in line with our goal to make mobility accessible to everyone,” said Joyride Founder Vince Cifani. “For the time being, this is the method cities are using to manage this new form of mobility in order to reshape infrastructure like bike lanes and parking. And our Populus collaboration is making it as simplified as possible for operators of all sizes to comply and securely deliver this information.”
As a partner of Populus, Joyride-powered operators will be more easily able to comply with data-sharing requirements, meaning even the smallest of fleet owners can provide powerful data to their own municipality.
“Cities and operators have greater opportunities to collaborate with access to better data about how vehicles are being used,” said Regina Clewlow, Populus CEO. “We look forward to working with Joyride to help them deliver their data to cities to help plan for the future of micromobility.”
Launched in 2017, Joyride is a global micromobility platform with partnerships in more than 50 markets across five continents. Joyride’s turnkey technology lets operators and cities navigate the new terrain of micromobility and scale their fleets in a matter of hours through a branded user app, field operations apps, backend system management and payment gateway.
