Have you ever been stuck in a situation where you need to reach a place that is too tiring to walk and too close for a taxi or ride-sharing? We all have. How about public transportation? No, okay, how does the word scooter sound like?
A Scooter! Really?
Yes a scooter, but not any scooter, an electric scooter that can easily take away those upsetting in-between distances that might affect your daily commutes. Introducing SLYD, a micro-mobility Egyptian enterprise that offers affordable scooter rides for short distances. Slyd helps its riders to reach a distance of 5 Km or less, where users can book their rides using an app. The mobile application allows riders to select a scooter parked near them, unlock it and use it right away. After completing the ride and parking the scooter in its station, the Slyd wallet app is charged once the rider locks the scooter after completing the trip.
Is it really worth it?
There are many perks for using Slyd’s e-scooters. First, they are electric, so environmentally friendly. Second, they are fast, but not too fast to make the riders unable to control them. Third, they are slim and easy to navigate through traffic. Slyd scooters are also lots of fun and are designed to empower the riders; that is YOU.
Not only does Slyd empower its riders, but it also empowers the Egyptian economy. by designing a sophisticated software to make seamless cash payments, Slyd contributes by increasing the credit card penetration in Egypt, said Mohamed Hamza, Slyd Co-founder.
It gets more interesting …
Slyd also created smart- locking software for the scooters that limit chances of theft or vandalism of the scooters, since they are publicly displayed in their allocated stations, said Hamza.
In addition, Slyd owns excellent operational solutions that leverage data in order to place the scooters in different locations where users need to use them the most.
Where can Slyd be found?
Slyd is initially available in residential compounds, university campuses, business complexes, and was available on North Coast during the summer. The company plans to expand in many areas of greater Cairo, which demands short distances transportation means.
