Banca Transilvania and the coffee shop chain 5 to go joined, starting August, UberGREEN electric mobility pilot project, the 100 percent electric car service. The two companies support the pilot program partially covering the cost of leasing UberGREEN electric cars, thus supporting the drivers of the partners that offer this service.

In March, Bucharest became the first city in Central and Eastern Europe with a fully electric ride-sharing service. In Europe, Uber also offers electric mobility options in London, Paris, Madrid, Amsterdam, Lisbon, Porto, Zurich and Munich. Meanwhile, more than 10,000 people used the UberGREEN electric cars. The total distance covered by electric cars was 71,769 kilometers.

“Since February, since we launched UberGREEN, we are working on the development of the electrical service in Bucharest and we are happy to have Banca Transilvania and 5 to go. We believe that the future of transport is electric, shared with others and autonomous; we want more and more people to have access to 100 percent electrical mobility solutions, convenient and a button away, and this partnership is an important step towards this vision,” said Nicoleta Schroeder, general manager, Uber Romania.

Bucharest faces a serious problem of air pollution. In addition, in May this year, the European Commission announced the launch of the infringement procedure against Romania for failing to comply with air quality standards.
