Shared micromobility operator Dott has reported a 130 per cent increase in rides during 2021 when compared with a year prior.
Over the year, Dott saw a 108 per cent increase in the number of riders who used its shared e-scooters and e-bikes to travel around cities throughout Europe.
The peak month was September, as a return to commuting for much of Europe led to 80 per cent growth in riders and a 120 per cent leap in trips year-on-year.
The French micromobility operator now operates in nine countries and 38 cities, compared to seven countries and 20 cities at the end of 2020.
Dott now has more the 40,000 shared e-scooters stationed across Europe, while around 10,000 e-bikes are now available in Paris, Brussels, Rome, Milan and Cologne.
The average cost of a trip is now around €2, making shared e-scooters and e-bikes comparable with public transport pricing.
“2021 has been a transformational year for Dott, as we reached the milestone of launching e-bikes in major cities across Europe, offering a new choice of vehicle to suit the different needs of our riders,” said Dott CEO Henri Moissinac.
“The significant growth demonstrates that more people are discovering how Dott unlocks efficient, safe and reliable travel across their cities.”
