Article suivant Green Line 3 and Rabbit Mobility to offer integrated journeys to their passengers RATP DEV MOBILITY CAIRO’s Green Line 3 and Rabbit Mobility Offer Integrated End to End Seamless Journeys to Metro Passengers The collaboration comes under the full support and guidance of the Ministry of Transport and the National Authority for Tunnels for public transport initiatives and sustainable cities Integrating fast, ecofriendly transit meets sustainability targets for both companies, and guarantees premium services to Green Line 3 customers The service mainly targets young travelers, extending passengers’ journey beyond the metro to their arrival destination In a move meant to add more convenience to its passengers’ journey, RATP Dev Mobility Cairo (RDMC), the company in charge of the operation and maintenance of Metro Green Line 3, has signed a cooperation protocol with Rabbit Mobility to provide a seamless, environmentally friendly electric scooter option outside four Green Line 3 stations to enable them to move freely and speedily from the station to their end point – all while conserving the environment. The collaboration comes within a framework of the full support and guidance of the Ministry of Transport and the National Authority for Tunnels in projects enhancing the national transportation network and promoting sustainable cities. Based on this integration and starting Sunday the 1st of October 2023, a trial period of 3 months will provide electric scooters outside Heliopolis, El Ahram, Kolleyet El Banat and Safaa Hegazy stations of Green Line 3 in exchange for discounted fares mainly targeted at young riders and students with access to technology and limited financial resources. The service consolidates RATP Dev Mobility Cairo’s efforts to guarantee ultimate convenience to its passengers while encouraging the general public to use clean-energy-based transport methods throughout their journey – an end aim sought out by both RDMC and Rabbit Mobility. Promoting sustainability and environmental conservation are key constituents of RDMC’s mode of business, with its mother RATP Dev group counted as one of the world leaders in green public transport. Synergizing around this goal, RDMC and Rabbit Mobility have turned their common core values into a service that will now provide for the first time in the Middle East and Africa this tech-based micromobility solution to their customers for added comfort and speed. Commenting on the joint-project, Eng. Wadii Bouchiha, CEO of RATP Dev Mobility Cairo, said “we are proud to offer this integrated service to our passengers, and consolidate our efforts of transformation towards sustainability and green transit, particularly as we collaborate with a unique company providing a first of its kind offering of smart micromobility across Egypt and Africa.” From his side, ،Kamal ElSoueni, CEO of Rabbit Mobility said "We’re excited to offer our users an end-to-end solution through our partnership with RDMC, the operator of Cairo's Metro’s Green Line 3. Our goal is to provide a seamless first/last mile solution for riders and integration with Cairo's metro is the first step in the plan to integrate with all forms of public transport across different cities in Egypt." Rabbit Mobility app was developed by a number of young Egyptians, winning first prize following its launch at COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh, as part of the National Initiative for Smart, Green Projects under the Ministry of Planning. Operating in 7 Egyptian cities, Rabbit Mobility’s client base currently extends to over 350,000 users who have collectively crossed nearly 2 MN (1.8MN) kilometers across Egypt. The integration between RDMC and Rabbit’s micromobility services will enable passengers to move freely around Cairo neighborhoods in exchange for a convenient, discounted rate, besides limiting traffic congestions and making a considerable contribution when it comes to decreased emissions and advancing alternative electricity-based modes of transportation. Following the trial launch, the two companies plan further development of the service based on customer insights, with the overall aim of ensuring an enhanced quality of life for Cairenes and a service on a par with global trends and standards of public transport.
