Helbiz Company Wheels to Launch Long-Term Rentals in DC

16 December 2022

Wheels, a Helbiz  company and micro-mobility operator with a unique sit-down scooter, is bringing its popular long-term rental option for its device to a new market, Washington, D.C., allowing riders to rent their own sit-down scooter for personal use.“Washington, D.C. is a city that is constantly on the move and features a good base of functional infrastructure to support ridership,” said Marco McCottry, Head of Long Term Rentals at Helbiz. “Wheels’ sit-down scooters are one of a kind and their ease of use allows for quick adoption and flexibility in many different commuting scenarios. We see them used for a myriad of reasons in NYC and believe they'll be equally useful in Washington D.C.”

“This expansion of Wheels’ long term rental business to Washington, D.C. reflects our goal of using our resources to expand the vehicle’s reach,” said Helbiz CEO Salvatore Palella. “We will continue to expand on existing partnerships, like Uber Eats, to further grow value in the device and company they built to date.”

Starting in January, the subscription will cost $129.99 per month and can be canceled anytime after return of the vehicle. To rent the device, visit https://takewheels.com/long-term-rentals/.
