Today, smartphones give us access to a wide range of transport solutions that we can pay for as we go. This “mobility as a service” is a tailor-made response to our individual travel needs.
Committed to safe, simple, sustainable and affordable mobility, Groupe PSA also provides mobility services that give everyone the freedom to move around.
Free2move, the Group’s mobility brand, now offers its services in 13 countries on three continents, making it THE solution for people wanting to get around – and get ahead.
PSA’s goal is to make the Group a major player in mobility services on an international scaleExecutive Vice-President, Mobility and Connectivity Services
FREE2MOVE APP: AN APP OF APPS
Free2move embodies this new approach by offering an “app of apps” that gives access to nearly 50 mobility services provided by all types of operators in 34 cities.
It allows people to access the most popular mobility solutions – cars, bikes, freeride kick and motor scooters, ride-hailing services and public transport – from a single application.
Launched in April 2017, Free2Move App has been downloaded by 2 million users to date.
The Free2Move app offers 65,000 vehicles (cars, scooters and bikes) in Europe (France, Germany, Austria, Spain, Italy, United Kingdom, Belgium, Sweden, Portugal, the Netherlands and Denmark) and through a range of operators in the United States.

– Ride-hailing services: Uber, AlloCab, CleverShuttle, etc.
– Self-service bikes: Donkey Republic and more than ten local operators
– Self-service scooters: COUP and close to ten local operators
The transition to mobility as a service is gathering pace, with the number of users of mobility services set to reach 36 million worldwide by 2025.
FREE2MOVE CARSHARING SERVICES
On top of its app, Free2move is also a carsharing operator, currently available in five cities: Washington DC, Madrid, Lisbon, Paris and Wuhan in China.
A fleet of 500 to 1000 self-service electric vehicles* is available in each city. The principle is simple: find the nearest vehicle and unlock it using your smartphone, then pay based on how long you use it.
Already, 260,000 customers have used our carsharing services. On average, they use them three to five times a month, and rarely for more than 30 minutes at a time.
* Except in Washington DC

An enhanced experience
Connected cars are becoming smart spaces, opening up fresh possibilities for services such as personal assistants in the vehicle, remote activation and deactivation, thermal pre-conditioning of the passenger compartment and remote diagnosis.
These new services draw on the exchange of data whose integrity and confidentiality must be guaranteed during transfers between the vehicle and the cloud.
To meet this challenge, Groupe PSA is developing a global automotive IoT platform known as the Connected Vehicle Modular Platform, designed to comply with highly demanding data protection requirements.
In doing so, the Group’s aim is to foster an augmented and increasingly personalised automotive experience.
