In just a few years, shared mobility has grown rapidly in popularity, from electric scooters and bicycles to cars and mopeds. Many believe this will help cities reduce both carbon emissions and traffic congestion. However, the rapid growth has also led to a high concentration of operators in cities, resulting in a fragmented market that often forces users to check several apps before they can find a nearby ride. This complex market situation slows down the adoption of otherwise-promising shared mobility solutions.
Cogo is an app that gathers all shared scooters, bikes, cars and mopeds as long as they are human or electric powered. Cogo aggregates over 190 different operators in 500 cities worldwide today, with the goal of making it so easy and seamless to move around that shared mobility can compete with private car ownership— both on convenience and price.
In April 2021, Japanese authorities partially eased regulations on E-scooters, and so the shared mobility market in Japan is expected to expand rapidly in the near future, presenting a huge opportunity for Cogo to unleash the full potential of shared mobility.
