To attract fans to the program, the company does not charge a monthly fee for the first 30 days of using the service. Anyone who wants to join the news can do so through the Grin app. Prime includes yellow bikes and green scooters, but scooters from the partnership with Rappi are not included in the program.
According to the company, the objective of the initiative is to make micromobility services more accessible to the public. Our subscription model is the first of many steps we plan to make our services an affordable travel alternative, which is good for users, but also for cities, explains Karim Hardane, general director of Grow in Brazil. The company, which manages the Grin and Yellow brands, also promises to announce other exclusive benefits to subscribers soon.
