Cities and micromobility operators respond to combat the COVID-19 outbreak

Mar 30, 2020Insights

Almost one billion people were confined to their homes worldwide on Saturday (March 21) due to coronavirus. While most of us are required to #StayHome and avoid unnecessary travel, there are many people whom countries need to keep going – health-care workers, grocery cashiers, pharmacists to name a few. 

In front of this outbreak, cities and micromobility operators quickly adapt to the situation and #WorkTogether to provide safest, fastest and most affordable modes of transportation for those who need to commute.

In this section we collect examples of how cities and micromobility operators respond to the current situation and what they do to combat the COVID-19 outbreak.
