We empower local communities by promoting local friendly modes of transportation that connect local neighbors and others like tourist. Creating a more local friendly and community consciousness by sharing unused transportation modes. Encouraging local neighbors to give a use to their un used bikes and boats. Contributing to the Amsterdam ecosystem within the canals and streets. By doing so we did not only generated a sustainable and expandable business model which focuses on recycling unused mobility options but also offer a financial compensation to the local users as well as a more convenient renting services for others in need of a ride.

-Providing a local friendly mobility solution to Amsterdam's crowded streets.
-Providing local owners with an economic reward.

What can other cities learn from your project?

Keeping a city safe and clean isn't easy but there is always a solution!
At Movby we learned that our most important asset is the community we are working with, locating their mobility issues and offering a convenient and local solution to a global scale.
We learnt that what matters the most isn´t what is being shared, for how much or for how long but the place where it's shared and the people that create the community.

In the future Movby will look into other locations in order to find out how to generate the best mobility option range and strengthen the local community.
