Abu Dhabi, 21 October 2019 – Provis, the Abu Dhabi-based company established to deliver leading and innovative solutions in Estate Management, has announced its partnership with micro-mobility company Circ to provide e-scooters for residents across several communities within the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
Golf Gardens, Al Raha Gardens, Sun & Sky and Gate & Arc will be among the first Provis’s communities to use e-scooters.
The agreement was signed by HP Aengaar, Chief Executive Officer at Provis, and Jaideep Dhanoa, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Circ MENA, during a ceremony attended by representatives from both parties.
In line with Abu Dhabi’s Environment Vision 2030, this partnership introduces a sustainable transportation solution, which prioritizes mitigating the impact of climate change, ensuring safe and healthy living conditions through the provision of clean air and reducing noise pollution.
“As part of our vision, Provis has always been keen to offering green and innovative ways for our communities to ensure a seamless experience and manage all customers’ needs and expectations”, said HP Aengaar, Chief Executive Officer at Provis. “Our partnership with Circ highlights our continued efforts to achieve this objective, through providing an environmentally friendly alternative means of transportation across several communities that we manage in Abu Dhabi”, stated Aengaar.
Circ will hold offline education and training events at these communities to ensure the highest levels of safety and best possible driving experience to customers as they promote micro mobility.
Jaideep Dhanoa, Co-Founder and CEO, Circ MENA, added: “The UAE has a unique opportunity to lead the global community in developing cleaner, safer and better-connected journeys. With this agreement we will offer Provis’s communities with an alternative, fully-electric transportation option that is quicker and more convenient for short-distance trips within and around a community, enables first and last mile travel to public transport locations, and is equitable and affordable for all income brackets. We are delighted to be working with Provis as they help us achieve our mission to serve affordable, sustainable and better-connected journeys for everyone.”
Bader Al Kalooti, Co-Founder and COO, Circ MENA, added: “We use purpose-built e-scooters tailored to the region and invest in the necessary operational infrastructure in order to provide the highest service standards and the most optimal experience for users. Given our focus on safety first, we have also invested in comprehensive insurance for all rides in the UAE, including personal accident, 3rd party liability and product liability coverage”.
Simultaneously, both entities will work together to establish operating parameters including GEO zones, go/no-go zones, speed limits, parking and hotspot locations in the designated communities, ensuring the scooters add value to residents’ living experience in all Provis managed communities without inconveniencing any stakeholders.
