In Paris, the ZITY electric car-sharing service was adapted to offer free use for healthcare workers of up to 300 Renault ZOE cars via Hoptisoins, the online service platform set up by Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP). This free offer will initially be reserved for the staff of the nine hospitals in the Paris region involved in treating COVID-19. The first cars were placed near these hospitals on March 30. Each AP-HP location benefiting from the service will be allocated a vehicle for its use. The vehicles will be recharged and cleaned by ZITY teams during the caregivers' work periods and in full compliance with the health procedures in force. The ZITY car sharing platform launched February but operations were temporarily suspended because of the COVID-19 crisis.
Additionally, within ZITY’s fleet, 10 Renault ZOE carss were made available to the AP-HP logistics department at the Pitié-Salpêtrière site. These vehicles will be used to supply hospitals with essential equipment.
