Gotcha Mobility announced it will offer its electric vehicles to local restaurants and merchants in an effort to help meet the demand for delivered products such as takeout meals and light groceries. The company is pivoting its business model in the face of coronavirus to support local businesses and their employees and customers. Gotcha will maintain its core micro-mobility business in several markets across the U.S. while also adding the food delivery service.
“As long as transportation systems are open and deemed safe, Gotcha will continue to operate its e-mobility products across the country,” said Sean Flood, CEO of Gotcha. “Whether its food delivery during COVID-19 or for essential travel, we want to be there to support our riders while keeping them safe.”
Based on availability in each market, local businesses can choose from e-bikes, seated scooters, or stand-up scooters at a discounted rate of $15 per day for each vehicle (further discounts offered for more than 5 vehicles). Restaurants and merchants can contact the local Operations Manager to join the service.
Gotcha’s e-mobility products will be available as long as they’re allowed on the streets. The company will temporarily suspend operations should government requirements supersede. While the general public needs to employ social distancing to help minimize the spread of COVID-19, Gotcha will continue to follow CDC guidelines to properly clean its products.
Gotcha was recently acquired by MILE (formerly OjO Electric) and MILE’s team brings expertise in food delivery through a pilot program operated by OjO.
