Micromobility operator Dott has seen a record number of rides on its shared e-bikes and e-scooters this summer.
Present in more than 50 cities in Europe and Israel, the company reported a 57% increase in both rides and riders throughout July, August and September in comparison with 2021’s third quarter.
July had the biggest monthly increase – 81% more riders took 88% more rides compared to the same period in 2021. The average ride distances for the year so far peaked in August, with a distance of 2.4km on e-scooters and 2.9km on e-bikes.
Henri Moissinac, Dott’s Co-Founder and CEO, told Zag Daily that he expects to double 2021’s rides by the end of this year.
“Our continued growth throughout the summer, and as people returned to work after the holidays builds on the sharp increase in demand for our service that we have seen all year. As people increasingly discover the effectiveness of our shared vehicles to travel across their cities without causing pollution, we expect this to continue and to double our total usage this year compared to 2021.”
According to Moissinac, the shared fleet available in many of Europe’s tourist hotspots, supports visitors to discover new places throughout the peak summer holidays and, at the same time, supports local residents to get around their cities and commute to work.
Dott currently operates over 40,000 e-scooters and 10,000 e-bikes in cities in Belgium, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Poland, Spain, Sweden, and the UK.
