More than half the world’s population now live in cities
By 2050, this will reach two-thirds. As more people move from rural areas to cities, there’ll be more cars on the roads, more traffic congestion hotspots near homes and workplaces, and less green space.
Unless we are bold enough to challenge the status quo and do something about it.
Our vision: Cities made for living, free from noise and pollution.
At Voi, we believe in a future where roads in cities are recaptured by people. We want people to be put back at the centre of urban transformation, aiming for a tomorrow in which people live and move in a safe and healthy environment with less pollution, less noise, and more space.
The future we see is a sustainable one where circularity is the norm and shared mobility the way to go. Where individuals, businesses and governments alike take responsibility and strive to reduce their climate impact, help protect our planet and contribute to more liveable cities for all.
Sveavägen is a busy main road in central Stockholm with up to five lanes of traffic. Our proposal, developed with JAJA Architects, is to create a green spine on Sveavägen, rather than a polluting road.
The green spine would prioritise walking, biking, micromobility, public transport and delivery cargo bikes. In addition, it would provide space for people to enjoy a less frantic, and more vibrant city centre.
Marseille - Rue Paradis
Marseille has mainly car-oriented transport corridors between the city centre and its suburbs, which hinders the promotion of micromobility.
To address this, the proposal for Rue Paradis suggests cutting down to a one-direction car lane and creating a mobility hub to connect micromobility and buses. A cycle lane has also been included, separated from traffic by a "flex zone," which is created by removing 50% of the existing parking spots.
A new paradigm for urban development that emphasizes access to daily necessities within a 15-minute radius, achieved through walking, biking, or public transit. Voi supports this idea for urban development and believes shared micromobility plays an important role in strengthening public transportation networks.
Our mission: Safe, sustainable and reliable micromobility for everyone.
To achieve our vision, we offer different modes of light mobility vehicles that are safe, affordable, and easy to use – allowing people to move around the city on their terms. By making sustainable transportation options more widely available, we believe that we can improve quality of life in cities around the world, while also contributing to the fight against climate change.
For instance, combining a bus and a scooter can reduce hurdles and total travel time, making public transport a viable alternative to the car. This is particularly relevant in the context of commuting, whether it’s for work, to meet relatives, or to visit a gallery with friends.
Closer ties between micromobility and public transport benefit cities
A joint initiative between Voi, Mobimeo and German rail operator S-Bahn Stuttgart has proven to both improve e-scooter parking and boost public transport ticket sales. This project is a promising step in the direction of mutually beneficial integration between micromobility and public transport providers.
Voi offers an efficient way to extend the reach and productivity of existing public transport systems which would otherwise require large infrastructure investments.
Our ready-to-use framework uses standard application programming interfaces (APIs) for shared mobility operators, such as GBFS & MDS, making our service easily integrated with public transportation, platforms for route planning and Mobility as a Service (MaaS) applications.
