New York-based Helbiz, which brought its dockless electric bikes to D.C. earlier this year, is now deploying fleets of its e-scooters in Arlington and Alexandria, Virginia.
Helbiz will eventually have 200 e-scooters in Alexandria and 100 in Arlington, and riders will be allowed to travel between the two jurisdictions, but nowhere else.
Helbiz joins a half dozen other e-scooter companies operating in Arlington County and Alexandria.
Helbiz opened a warehouse in Alexandria to run its operations in the two jurisdictions.
In the District, Helbiz has said it will eventually have a fleet of 2,000 e-bikes.
Although Helbiz calls New York its headquarters, most of it bikes and scooters are in European cities.
