HumanForest is launching London’s first shared e-moped scheme, the company’s new innovation to provide delivery drivers with flexible access to sustainable travel.
The e-moped trial consists of 200 vehicles, all fully powered by certified renewable energy, which will be rented by business delivery riders across London.
The HumanForest e-moped is an electric vehicle for longer trips, offering a 70-mile range, dual electric batteries, an integrated USB charging point, phone holder, integrated GPS tracking and alarm system, as well as a 40L Top Box equipped with HumanForest e-moped helmet.
Agustin Guilisasti, CEO and founder, said: “Becoming multi-modal with London’s first shared and truly green eMoped scheme gives Londoners another tool to reduce their carbon footprint and improve air quality. As petrol prices reach record-highs, this is a timely launch for businesses to embrace sustainable transport through a shared service with maximum flexibility. We are excited to welcome this new type of user into our community.”
In keeping with the HumanForest business model, every user is given five minutes free per day. Rides will cost £0.20p per minute thereafter, or customers can benefit from buying minute bundles, allowing them to ride from £1.50 per hour. Users will also be charged per kilometre ridden.
The HumanForest e-mopeds, as well as the company’s entire operations, are powered by 100% certified renewable energy making them completely carbon neutral, whilst also significantly reducing noise pollution across the city.
Furthermore, as the fleet is fully managed and serviced by the HumanForest team, users do not have to pay for fuel or battery charge, whilst also making significant daily savings on ULEZ costs.

HumanForest e-moped parking will be available in certain areas of central London, near important transport links and busy high streets. Users will be able to park the vehicles within chosen public parking areas and solo motorcycle bays, which will be marked and visible within the app.
All riders will undergo thorough safety and compliance checks. Their Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) certificate or driver’s licence will be uploaded to the HumanForest App and automatically verified using HumanForest’s technology.
The trial will commence today, 13th July 2022.
