Edenred is launching its Ticket Mobilité® network with over 150 partners across France. It has seven key partners covering the main aspects of employees’ commuting journeys. This area has become one of the major themes in the mandatory round of negotiations currently underway in many French businesses.
A broad range of mobility options, such as car-pooling, car-sharing, charging points, fuel, self-service mobility solutions, and bike rental and purchases, are available to help meet employees’ everyday commuting needs
Over the past few months, Edenred has been building its Ticket Mobilité® network of partners to make it an ecosystem catering for employees’ daily travel needs and supporting the transition to soft modes of transport.
Thanks to the addition of seven new partners, namely Lime, MyPangee, Cityscoot, Izivia, Ubeeqo, BlaBlaCar Daily and E.Leclerc, Ticket Mobilité® boasts the most extensive network in the marketplace. Ticket Mobilité covers all the services that can be paid for as part of the Forfait mobilités durables sustainable mobility plan introduced by the Loi d’Orientation des Mobilités Act.
Edenred’s Ticket Mobilité® offers the broadest possible choice of alternatives and encompasses all the latest forms of mobility, which are going from strength to strength. By providing access to the new mobility forms championed by the Forfait mobilités durables sustainable mobility plan, Edenred is encouraging a responsible approach to everyday journeys and helping to facilitate the journeys of people in France who drive to work.
“The crisis situation over the past few months has prompted employers and employees to rethink their daily journeys and consider their environmental footprint”, commented Vianney du Parc, General Manager, Edenred France. “Ticket Mobilité® applies the elements that have made our Ticket Restaurant® program so successful to French employees’ daily commutes. We have joined forces with leading mobility players so we can offer a full range supporting employers and their employees. Thanks to this new solution, Edenred is playing its part alongside its partners in driving forward France’s sustainable mobility ecosystem.”
A diverse network of distributors championing new mobility forms
The Ticket Mobilité network consists of over 150 partners in total, including almost a hundred soft mobility applications (electric scooters, bikes, mopeds, and self-service cards) covering over 90% of the self-service offering across all France’s cities. It also includes the leading commuting car-pooling and bike companies. Lastly, it is supported by around 700 service stations and more than 20,000 charging points for electric vehicles.
Micromobilité (electric scooters/bikes): Lime
“The pandemic has served as a catalyst for the development of environmentally friendly modes of transport and made micromobility a vital aspect of the energy transition”, commented Antoine Bluy, Chief Executive Officer of Lime in Paris. “As a market leader and an ambassador for sustainable mobility, we at Lime want to offer employees an additional, low-cost and no-strings-attached way of commuting using soft modes of transport. Edenred’s Ticket Mobilité® program includes our services and enables thousands of employees to travel to or from work on a Lime electric scooter or bike at no cost, since their employer covers the charges.”
Bike leasing: Mypangee
Pangée, the leader in France’s bike leasing market, and Edenred France have teamed up on the Ticket Mobilité® program, a new Edenred solution making it easier for employees to adopt ecomobility solutions for their commute. Mypangee is adding the Ticket Mobilité® to the list of payment solutions accepted. All Ticket Mobilité® recipients now have access via https://demainavelo.mypangee.com/ to a catalogue of selected brands, insurance policies, services, warranties, on-site delivery and services. The whole package has been made more affordable thanks to the combination of our long-term leasing solutions and the option of using all or part of your Ticket Mobilité® account.
Electric mopeds: Cityscoot
Cityscoot is a shared electric moped service available in Paris and Nice. Currently, 22% of Cityscoot journeys are commutes, with 55% of users using the service for this purpose. The mobility plan will help to drive growth in demand for this type of journey. The partnership with Edenred represents a major opportunity to provide the benefit of the Ticket Mobilité® card to our users, as well as to raise awareness of our service to employees of businesses that Edenred will support with introducing a Forfait mobilités durables sustainable mobility plan.
Charging points for electric vehicles: Izivia
Seven out of ten employees in France drive to work in a car—an electric car in an increasing number of cases. Izivia, an EDF group subsidiary and a major force in electric mobility solutions, offers the Pass Izivia, a unique card for charging points. It simplifies the process of charging an electric vehicle on journeys by providing cardholders with access to over 100,000 charging points in France and the rest of Europe. Thanks to the partnership with Edenred, electric vehicle users can now pay for their Izivia pass and for using charging points on commuting journeys with Ticket Mobilité®. A free Izivia mobile app can also help them to plan journeys and track their consumption.
“With Ubeeqo, our car-sharing service for round trips, we want to offer an alternative to car ownership, because we truly believe shared mobility solutions are, first and foremost, a more sustainable and responsible solution. They should also be an attractive form of mobility. Why buy your own car when you can have local access to one in its own dedicated location that you can book and use whenever you want with just a few clicks? With its fully digital customer journey, Ubeeqo’s offering aims to be simple, as well as offering a broad range of vehicles. Our goal is to make life as simple as possible for our users. For all these reasons, we are very proud to have joined the Ticket Mobilité® network of partners and to be playing a role in driving change in France’s mobility solutions alongside Edenred.” Xavier Corouge, Group’s Chief Business and Customer Officer
Car-pooling: BlaBlaCar Daily
BlaBlaCar Daily, BlaBlaCar’s dedicated car-pooling app for commutes, has over 1.5 million registered users. With 70% of people in France driving to work, car-pooling provides an effective solution for cutting costs and CO2 emissions linked to these journeys, especially in suburban and rural areas where the public transport options are more limited. “This new financial incentive and the easy-to-use solution provided by Ticket Mobilité® Edenred and BlaBlaCar Daily’s technology, will speed up the change in behavior. They combine all the necessary ingredients to make car-pooling the go-to solution for the daily commute.” Adrien Tahon, General Manager of BlaBlaCar Daily
Service stations (fuel): E.Leclerc
With transport still households’ number one expenditure item, accounting on average for 18% of the budget(1), ahead of food and housing, E.Leclerc is opening up its network of service stations(2) to Edenred’s Ticket Mobilité® solution. All recipients of this new employee benefit will now have easier access to fuel at the E.Leclerc price, right across France(3).
