FREENOW has partnered with Irish bike sharing provider MOBY to make its fleet of bikes available on the FREENOW app

MOBY and FREENOW co-branded bikes will be available to book in Dublin via the FREENOW app alongside taxis from today.

The new partnership will allow FREENOW users to choose from different transport options when travelling, by combining taxis and bikes with existing public transport. 

MOBY has over 500 bikes available throughout Dublin city, with plans underway to extend this number to 1,500. 

To unlock a bike, users pay a €1 fee and it costs €0.15 per minute for an e-bike and €0.02 for a manual bike, after three free minutes. 

“We are delighted to partner with MOBY to integrate a new bike service to the FREENOW app, making it easier for passengers to consider efficient and sustainable transport options,” said Charlie Gleeson, General Manager of FREENOW Ireland. 

“The Irish government’s ambitious target to reduce carbon emissions by 50 per cent in the transport sector by 2030 sets a clear focus for the sector before the turn of the decade. 

“At FREENOW, we are committed to supporting the taxi industry’s progression towards these targets by continuing to onboard more EV drivers and expand our green (EV) taxi fleet alongside increased micro-mobility solutions, such as the MOBY integration.

“This announcement is also timely given the recent micromobility regulations introduced under the Road Traffic and Road Act 2023. 

“The new legislation will positively contribute to the integration of both e-bikes and e-scooters on Irish roads and support the safer use of micromobility moving forward.”
