The e-scooter pilot will enable researchers from Dublin City University (DCU) to analyse data and inform future e-scooter rollouts both in Dublin and throughout Ireland.

Bikes & Scooters
Researchers from the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART) investigate the potential of using e-scooter sharing to improve the overall efficiency of urban transportation through serving short-distance transit trips.
TIER has partnered with Google Maps to make it easier for users in big European cities to access its micromobility options, as it looks to expand into more locations in Europe.
Known primarily for its ride-hailing business, Bolt has now expanded its micromobility offering into more than 100 cities. Intelligent Transport’s Joshua Minchin sat down with Bolt’s Global Director of Rentals Products, Dmitri Pivovarov, to find out how it has achieved so much so quickly.
With the public remaining sceptical on the rollout of e-scooters across the UK, TIER Vice President Fred Jones explains the steps his company is taking to make its vehicles safe for all road users, and with that win over some hearts and minds during London’s e-scooter trial.
TfL’s scooter trial begins today, with Londoners able to rent Lime, Dott, and TIER vehicles in select areas of the capital.
TIER has revealed a new pricing structure to encourage safer riding, with users given a free minute at the start of each trip so they can put on their helmet and carry out other safety checks.
The study shows that e-scooter use is most likely to be highest when transfer and walking time between transit journeys is the longest, with e-scooters providing valuable last-mile benefits.
