Transport and Covid-19: responses and resources

Bolt joins the ITF Corporate Partnership Board

Bolt, the mobility super-app that offers various alternatives to private car use, has joined the Corporate Partnership Board of the International Transport Forum.

Bolt is on a mission to help build cities for people, not cars, by offering flexible and more affordable alternatives to private car ownership. This includes scooter and e-bike rental, ride-hailing, car-sharing, and food and grocery delivery. The company will work with ITF to advance transport decarbonisation, develop new mobility services, and make cities smarter.

Headquartered in Tallinn, Estonia, Bolt operates in more than 500 cities in 45-plus countries and has more than 100 million customers in Europe, Africa, Western Asia and Latin America. More than three million drivers and couriers worldwide use Bolt's platforms to offer rides and deliveries to customers.

The ITF is an intergovernmental organisation with 64 member countries that facilitates global dialogue for better transport. It acts as a think tank for member governments and organises an Annual Summit of transport ministers.

The Corporate Partnership Board is the ITF's platform for engaging with the private sector and enriching global transport policy discussion with a business perspective.

Jevgeni Kabanov, President of Bolt, said:

“By providing alternatives to private car ownership we aim to help cities overcome some of the problems that decades of car-dependency have caused, such as congestion, pollution and lack of space in urban areas. We are looking forward to collaborating with the ITF and its members to help reshape mobility in cities and create more people-friendly urban environments.”

ITF Secretary-General Young Tae Kim said:

 “Reducing transport emissions is a central prerequisite to achieving the international community’s climate goals. I am thrilled that Bolt will contribute to our work in this area as a member of the ITF Corporate Partnership Board. Bolt’s strong spirit of innovation and immense practical experience in helping citizens to choose less-emitting mobility options will be an inspiration. I very much look forward to working with Jevgeni Kabanov and his team.”
