Saarbrücken, 19 May 2021 – Today, GO Sharing will launch its shared mobility service in Germany after the recent takeover of Saarbrücken-based shared moped service TRIBe. GO Sharing will subsequently station 100 shared electric mopeds in the Saarland capital before expanding to other German cities.
Saarbrücken is the first in a series of Germany cities where GO Sharing will offer its sustainable shared mobility service. Last month, the company announced that it has raised € 50 million to finance, among others, its international expansion. The Dutch scale-up is on a mission to change transportation behaviour worldwide and hopes to see personal vehicle ownership diminish in favour of on-demand use of shared vehicles. The German market constitutes a vital European element of the company’s sustainable transportation goals.
A green planet with mobility by everyone, for everyone
GO Sharing was founded in late 2019 and now operates a fleet of over 5,000 vehicles in more than 30 cities. In April 2021, the scale-up expanded its service beyond the Netherlands to the Austrian capital Vienna, followed by the Belgian city of Antwerp.
GO Sharing CEO Raymon Pouwels says: ‘Our motto is: “a green planet with shared mobility by everyone, for everyone”. We aspire to change the global attitude towards mobility from personal vehicle ownership to on-demand use. Our aim is to provide accessible shared door-to-door transportation to users around the globe. We would like to stimulate the use of shared electric mopeds and e-bikes for inner-city trips and electric cars for intercity and interregional journeys. We proudly launch in Saarbrücken today, as Germany shows immense potential for sustainable shared transportation.’
