On Deck

All the latest on micromobility in the UK and across Europe.

Industry firsts and European expansions

There have been some significant developments in the shared e-scooter space across Europe over the past month. As Zag exclusively revealed on Wednesday, Shell is set to install micromobility charging hubs at 25 of its forecourts in Berlin this summer after partnering with Swiftmile.

London calling as UK rides approach new milestone

The past month has been a significant one in the world of micromobility, most notably in the UK. Yesterday, Transport for London finally revealed the three operators that had been chosen for the London e-scooter trials, with Tier, Lime and Dott confirmed as expected.

Two million journeys and counting

There has been some positive progress for the UK’s shared e-scooter industry in recent weeks. The trials have now clocked up over two million journeys since July 2020 and Zag’s own data analysis suggests there has already been a positive impact with riders shifting away from using private cars.

Deadlines, expansion and getting more people out of cars

Today is the Department for Transport’s (DfT) own deadline for all shared e-scooter trials to start in the UK. However, there are still many questions that need to be answered, including whether there will be an extension. Zag thinks it’s likely.

Big milestones and big money

A big milestone has been reached in the UK e-scooter trials this week as Voi, the market leader with 60% market share, has tipped one million rides across its 17 locations.
