The Free Now passenger transport service, operated by the company Clever Tech, has decided “for commercial reasons” to postpone its exit from the Romanian market, originally scheduled for June 30, to a date that has not yet been set. Romania-insider.com reported, stating profit.ro†
Clever Tech announced on May 25 that it would end the Free Now service in the Romanian market. It was a “very difficult decision”, which would allow the company to focus on further investments in key markets in Europe, where the goal of building a complete platform of multi-mobility services can be achieved, Free Now informed its partners at the time.
Free Now is part of the mobility joint venture between BMW and Daimler, founded in February 2019.
In Romania, Daimler has been present in the urban mobility segment since 2017, when Intelligent Apps, the owner of the mytaxi.net application and part of the Daimler Mobility Services company, acquired 100% of the Romanian startup Clever, according to the reports.
