SPIEF 2021: Wheely announced as official chauffeur service
29 May 2021Press-release
Accredited chauffeurs for First, Luxe, and XL-class vehicles can enter privileged event zones across St. Petersburg.
As the official chauffeur service of St. Petersburg International Economic Forum 2021 (2-5 June), Wheely has been granted exclusive access to privileged pick-up and drop-off zones, giving event-goers a luxurious alternative to the long process of accrediting their own vehicles or having to walk to the venue from weather-exposed access points outside the security cordon. All Wheely chauffeurs for First, Luxe, and XL-class vehicles are accredited to deliver passengers directly to and from the venue’s front doors (Entrance C). Advance and on-demand bookings must be made directly through the five-star Wheely app, which is available in both the App Store and Google Play and can be used across all Wheely markets (St. Petersburg, Moscow, London, Paris, etc). Signup takes roughly 90 seconds, and all information is kept to the highest standards of privacy.
Can I book any Wheely car to get to/from the Forum?Only Wheely chauffeurs driving First, Luxe, and XL-class vehicles are accredited to pass security checkpoints at the Forum, Pulkovo Airport, Moskovsky Rail Terminal, and event partner hotels. Chauffeurs driving Business-class cars are limited to less privileged areas outside official cordons.
Which doors will I be picked up at?Accredited vehicles will meet you at the main doors (Entrance C), though limited pick-ups for Luxe-class fares are available for Entrance E and F (if you prefer this, contact Wheely support via the app after booking your ride). Business-class fares will arrive at the unaccredited vehicle pick-up/drop-off zone by the road. If you have the latest version of the app installed you’ll be able to clarify your specific location.
How many passengers can be included in each fare?
- First-class vehicles (Mercedes S-Class, BMW 7-Series) — 2 passengers (+1 front seat).
- Luxe-class (Mercedes Maybach) — 2 passengers (+1 front seat).
- XL-class (Mercedes V-Class) — 5 passengers (+1 front seat).
- Business-class (Mercedes E-Class, BMW 5-Series) — 3 passengers (+1 middle back seat).
