Zity presents itself as the affordable and sustainable mobility alternative during transport strikes

  • During past transportation strikes, platform usage has multiplied x2
  • The company launches an ambitious promotion whereby the first 30 minutes of driving will be free of charge.

Lyon, March 6th, 2023

The 100% electric carsharing company, present in Lyon since March 2023, has seen its registrations and usage increase during the strike days.

The increase in demand and the lack of alternatives during transport strike days, increase on average 35% the number of rentals, with peaks, such as the strike of November 18, up to 100%. Registrations in the app grow, on average, between 30 and 40%.

It is normal that, given the lack of affordable transportation alternatives during strike days, the number of users and uses of our app will grow. Our mission as a ridesharing company is to help citizens in their daily commute in the city through an affordable and sustainable transportation alternative”, says Javier Mateos, CEO of Zity.

In anticipation of the upcoming transport strike scheduled for next Tuesday (March 7th) , and in order to raise awareness of the service, the company is launching a promotion whereby the first 30 minutes of driving time will be free of charge from Tuesday, March 7 through Sunday, March 12, after entering the promotional code LYON30 in the promotions section of the application.
