MOMONDO-DUO GATHER URBAN TRANSPORT IN NEWLY LAUNCHED APP
Updated: Dec 7, 2020
Cogo is now officially launched, an app that gathers all shared rides - electric scooters, bicycles, cars and mopeds in one single app. The service was founded by Robin Eriksson and Bibi Blomqvist, both former senior managers at the travel site momondo. The purpose is to make it easier for today's city dwellers to move environmentally friendly in everyday life.
In a rapidly growing industry, however, it is becoming increasingly difficult for the individual to navigate. In the Cogo app, the user quickly gets an overview of shared environmentally friendly vehicles nearby, where the app shows the vehicle's location, price and possible battery status. The purpose of Cogo is to offer users an easy-to-use and transparent service that makes it easier to find and choose the operators that best match the personal need.
Cogo's co-founder, Robin Eriksson: “Bibi and I are very proud of what our team has achieved in such a short time. The industry is still young, but we can already today see the enormously positive effects that shared vehicles have on cities. We hope and believe that Cogo will accelerate and strengthen this trend and thereby contribute to a more sustainable future for the world's cities.”
The Cogo app is now available for download and includes over 140 operators in 400 cities worldwide. Although the service was recently launched, Cogo has already been used in over 250 cities in 40 countries.
Robin Eriksson: “We are very pleased with the positive response from both operators and users. This is proof that Cogo fulfills an important function in the everyday lives of urban people. In many cities there are a very large number of operators for shared mobility, and the inhabitants usually do not know the different alternatives and what distinguishes them. We are here to make it easier for the users and in the long run to help make the world's cities greener.”
Cogo is a complete solution for those who want to find and compare shared electric scooters, bicycles, cars and mopeds in urban environments. More than 140 operators in 400 cities worldwide have already joined the service. Sustainability is at the center and the app only includes manual and electric powered vehicles. Cogo is a completely free service and has so far been used in over 250 cities in 40 countries.
