Bonifacio Global City (BGC) partners with Moovr PH, the first-ever bike and e-scooter sharing platform to provide easy and sustainable mobility for Filipinos who want to beat the city traffic. They can easily rent bikes and e-scooters and use them within the comfort and safety of the Personal Mobility Device (PMD) network situated around BGC. These dedicated lanes provide connected safe routes that residents and employees can enjoy to get to their offices and move around the city.
Moovr PH, powered by Keepr Storage PH, is the Philippines‘ first-ever PMD-sharing mobile application for Filipinos who wish to engage in leisurely outdoor activities while practicing safe, physical-distancing.
The app empowers the public with immediate and 24-hour access to personal mobility devices (PMD) that come in two options: a single gear bike and an easy-to-use electric scooter built for safe and comfortable rides in and around BGC. The whole fleet of bikes and e-scooters will be regularly disinfected and sanitized, and can be accessed through Moovr Hubs that are within walking distance in strategic locations in Bonifacio Global City. Aside from safety and convenience, Moovr PH also practices sustainability. Their bikes and e-scooters produce only 1% of the carbon released by standard cars.
Bringing last-mile solutions to the Philippines, Moovr PH uses the same technology and user-friendly platform like those used in Europe, the US, and Canada. They are looking to extend to more locations in the metro, something many Filipinos will benefit from.
How does Moovr PH work?
1. Create an account
Download the Moovr PH app on your mobile device and follow the form to create an account through e-mail, Facebook, or Google. The app is now available for download on the App Store and the Google Play Store.
2. Find your ride
Once your profile is activated, simply find your ride by walking to the nearest Moovr Hub in BGC. Don’t forget to have your personal helmet ready!
3. Travel to destination
Upon reaching the Moovr Hub, select your vehicle and unlock it by scanning the QR code to start riding. Vehicles can be rented for a maximum of 24 hours and e-scooters must be returned if the battery is below 15%. Remember to drive only on the designated lanes and obey the traffic laws of BGC. The Moovr Hub will direct you to the nearest designated parking area closest to your destination between rides.
4. End in a Moovr Hub
Once your journey is complete, simply park and lock your bike in the nearest Moovr Hub in their designated spots in BGC and end the ride on your app.
Moovr provides easy and sustainable mobility for Filipinos living and working in BGC. Rates for use of the bikes start for as low as P15 for every 15 minutes, or any fraction thereof. The standard rate for e-scooters is P50 for every 20 minutes, or any fraction thereof. Payments are also cashless, and users can top up their Moovr credits through online transactions using their credit or debit cards.
With these efforts, BGC and Moovr PH aim to create a safer and more conducive environment for its BGCitizens.
