Flamingo To Launch In Dunedin

Flamingo, a proudly Kiwi-owned and operated micromobility company, is thrilled to announce its expansion into Dunedin this July. This exciting launch marks a significant milestone in our mission to enhance sustainable transport across New Zealand.

Flamingo’s arrival in Dunedin is set to enhance the way residents and visitors travel across the city, offering a safe, convenient and eco-friendly alternative to traditional transport methods. The partnership between Flamingo and Dunedin City Council underscores a shared commitment to enhancing sustainable transport and reducing the city's carbon footprint.

"We are excited to bring our services to Dunedin," said Jacksen Love, Co-Founder and Chief Executive of Flamingo. "As a locally owned company, we understand the unique needs of Kiwi communities and are dedicated to offering a reliable and sustainable transport option. Our partnership with Dunedin City Council is a testament to our shared vision of a greener future for Dunedin."

Ros MacGill, Dunedin City Council’s Manager Compliance Solutions, says the council went through a tender process to select Flamingo as the city’s new electric scooter provider.

“We’re excited by the approach this Kiwi-owned company will bring, and we’re impressed by their commitment to value, safety, and giving back to our local community. And with an increased range that will include suburbs such as Port Chalmers and Green Island, electric scooter lovers will be able to spread their wings further than before.”
