For around $125 per month, consumers can have access to cars, bicycles, scooters, and electric bikes via the platform's mobile app.
Go has its own vehicles and does not work with partnerships at this early stage of the business. At launch, Go has 10 cars, 110 scooters (up to 200 by early 2020), 20 electric bicycles and 10 manual bikes (the latter will reach 100 by early next year).
Those who subscribe to the startup's transportation plan have time quotas for use. For cars, per month, it's 60 hours. On scooters and electric bikes, the time rises to 80 hours. And for manual bikes the use is free. Credits are valid for the subscription month only, cannot be accumulated for the following month.
The operation in the state capital should start from commercial regions, such as Avenida Faria Lima. From there, the startup traces a radius of action of 15 km, perimeter in which it offers access to its means of transportation. Both cars, scooters and bikes need to be returned at specific points and cannot be left on the streets, as with Grin, Yellow or Lime vehicles.
The startup was formed with partners Francieli Balem, Company President, Ricardo Scolfaro, Simião Fernandes, Carlo Mantovani, Felipe Alves and Marcus Maid. In an interview with EXAME , Rafael Castro, cofounder and product manager at Go, says that the team was inspired by the business model seen in Portugal, in the company called MobiCascais, which unifies access to different vehicles in Cascais. For him, the format facilitates urban mobility. “The ten minutes you ride today can be even more expensive than a Uber ride,” says Castro.
