Wunder Mobility is launching the #WeAllMove initiative
April 16, 2020
COVID-19 abrupted our ability to move, with a third of world’s population in lockdown. While mobility services should prioritize the movement of essential workers, the task is not all that simple due to gaps in information about evolving mobility options and lack of matching-making tools. Furthermore, one of four employees cannot work from home, many businesses rely on mobility, and sustainable mobility choices are being shut down. The need to match mobility needs with mobility options is critical and holds the key for transitioning the world into a resilient and sustainable new normal in mobility.
Our portfolio company Wunder Mobility (mobility tech platform providing carpooling, smart shuttles, and free-floating sharing to consumers, corporates and cities) is launching the #WeAllMove initiative in partnership with the World Economic Forum’s COVID action platform, the Global New Mobility Coalition (which is curated by WEF), Hertz Germany and Allianz to ease access to new mobility solutions. Public and private mobility providers, cities, users, and improvers, are all invited to enhance the platform. Users looking for several vehicles can view and book mobility offers on the international platform free of charge. The WEF’s new platform organizes collective action in the business world in a bid to secure people’s livelihoods.
The platform has already united major industry players and aims to create a conversation about the role of mobility during the COVID-19 pandemic. Operators in over 105 cities and 29 countries have made their services available on the platform, and the numbers are said to be growing by the day.
Medical professionals, delivery service employees, grocery store workers and others that leave the safety of their homes each day to ensure that life keeps moving are said to be amongst those who will benefit from the initiative.
The World Economic Forum, Hertz Autovermietung, Allianz Automotive and Voi are all official partners of the platform and it is part of the World Economic Forum’s Global COVID Action Platform.
