Three60 Communities, a subsidiary of Eltizam Asset Management Group, has announced its partnership with micro-mobility company Circ to provide e-scooters for residents of Reem Village, Marina Square and City of Lights in Abu Dhabi.
This partnership aims to support Abu Dhabi’s Environment Vision 2030, which prioritises mitigating the impact of climate change and ensuring safe and healthy living conditions through the provision of clean air and reduced noise pollution.
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. 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 a Three60 Community without inconveniencing any stakeholders.
Chris Roberts, CEO, Eltizam Asset Management, said: “Three60 Communities, as one of the largest and most qualified OAM and PM companies in the region, is committed to ensuring we meet the expectations of our customers through the delivery of innovative solutions by our trusted and highly talented partners. Circ’s electric scooters offer residents an enjoyable, convenient and eco-friendly micro transport solution; they are also the fastest and most affordable transport option over short distances. We are certain they will be extremely well received as they enhance accessibility across public transport and intra-campus travel services, and we look forward to the positive impact our partnership with Circ will have on Abu Dhabi’s communities in the coming months and years. We have no doubts that it will be a huge success that will lead to similar initiatives in other cities throughout the Middle East.”
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. This agreement represents the first stage in maximizing the full potential of the initiative and we are delighted to be working with Three60 Communities as they will help us achieve our ambition to facilitate all micro mobility requirements in the country.”
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.”
Three60 Communities provides comprehensive OAM and PM services to master communities, residential towers, commercial towers, mixed use developments and villa communities across the UAE and the Sultanate of Oman. The company has grown significantly since its establishment in 2009, employing over 300 people across the UAE and Oman and being recognized regionally and internationally through a host of awards and certifications.
