Hi FRANCESCO RELLINI ! My name is Pablo Bosch  and I'm part of the City:One Challenge team. Thank you for collaborating with your idea, what you mentioned about reducing pollution and travelling time by scooter ridesharing is amazing. I have a question for you, if you want to use this app would you need a phone with access to internet? You also mentioned your platform is ready to be implement, have you already try it in a city with similar conditions to those of Mexico City?
Regards!
