Electric moped rental fleet hits Miami streets

Jan 07, 2020

After coming to an agreement with the Miami Parking Authority, an electric moped sharing company has unleashed its fleet to the Miami streets and is slated to bring more than 30 jobs here.

In November, the authority’s board unanimously approved awarding a contract to Revel, after the authority requested proposals. Since then, the company has set up shop in Allapattah.

“The addition of electric mopeds, as a new mode of transportation in Miami, is another quantum leap forward in support of enhanced mobility in our city,” said the authority CEO Art Noriega in a press release. “Once again, the Miami Parking Authority prides itself in leading innovative approaches that enhance mobility and the way our customers move and park in Miami.”

Revel will translate its app to Spanish and Creole, which had been suggested by the authority’s directors. The service area includes Allapattah, Brickell, Coconut Grove, Coral Way, Downtown Miami, Edgewater, Little Haiti, Little Havana, Liberty City, Model City, Overtown and Wynwood. While riders are not bound to the service area, they must begin and end their rides within the service area.
