European micro-mobility company Dott has announced the expansion of its partnership with Citymapper, as its e-bikes are incorporated in the Citymapper app across London and other cities, and its shared e-scooters are added to new locations across Europe.

Users looking for the most efficient and environmentally friendly way to travel across their city can now find Dott’s shared e-scooters and e-bikes integrated in the Citymapper app with other public and private transport options for longer journeys.

The partnership enables riders to find the closest available Dott vehicle and check its battery level in the Citymapper app. Users will also be able to plan journeys, view suggested routes and travel times, then navigate to their destination using real-time turn-by-turn directions, including optional audio guidance, which keeps the user within the riding area and avoids no-go zones. At the end of the ride, users will be guided to the best parking spot and then provided with walking directions to their final destination.

The additional Citymapper cities now featuring Dott’s vehicles are across the Nordics and south of Europe, including Helsinki, Stockholm and Marseille. These complement existing Citymapper integrations across the rest of Europe, which have been expanded to include Dott’s e-bikes in major cities such as London, Paris, Rome, Brussels and Cologne.

Stephan Croix, Chief Marketing Officer at Dott, said: “Our fleet of shared e-scooters and e-bikes unlock cities by providing an effortless way to travel in a sustainable way, helping to reduce congestion and pollution. By expanding our partnership with Citymapper, we can help more people to discover how Dott’s vehicles can make it easier to commute, visit friends or explore their city.”

Ravi Jolly, Partnerships Manager at Citymapper, said: “Micro-mobility is vital to making cities more sustainable, and we’re delighted to extend our partnership with Dott. With their e-scooters and e-bikes now available in our app across more cities, users can easily find their closest vehicle, plan trips and use our real-time turn-by-turn directions with audio guidance to get there seamlessly.”
