Vancouver –– September 14, 2017 –– LOOPShare Ltd. (TSX-V: LOOP) (“LOOPShare” or the “Company”), a global provider of electric scooter shared fleet services and technology, today announced receiving a purchase order and 50% down payment for a Transportation as a Service (“TaaS”) Field Trial for a fleet of 110 scooters over a 1-month period scheduled for Q1 2018.

The organization that placed the purchase order has significant presence in California as a developer of large residential communities. The service will be offered under the Loop brand and will deploy LOOPShare technology.
“Offering green transportation through a shared fleet of electric scooters based on LOOPShare technology would empower a unique ecosystem in communities developed by our customer”, said Anwar Sukkarie, President and Chief Executive Officer of LOOPShare. “The field trial would allow a better understanding of the use case and market of a large community of households, and project a strong entry into the shared mobility market in California.”
Upon the success of the field trial, the 110-scooter fleet is expected to rollout in 2018 to meet the projected demand for green, affordable, and easy to use commuting in large communities. LOOPShare aims to deploy additional commercial field trials in California, followed by commercial rollouts planned for 2018 and 2019.
