Dott awarded contract for micro-mobility services in Grenoble, France
Further expanding its micro-mobility operations in France, Dott will provide the city of Grenoble with over 4,000 e-scooters and e-bikes from July 2022.
European micro-mobility company Dott has announced that it has won two competitive tenders from the city of Grenoble in France, authorising it to launch both its e-bikes and e-scooters from 1 July 2022 in an exclusive contract.
Dott will be the sole provider of 2,100 e-bikes and 2,100 e-scooters across 17 municipalities, as well as the university and hospital areas. The deployment of shared service on this scale is a first in France and will offer residents a simple, efficient and accessible service for their daily transport needs.
The launch of its service in Grenoble builds on Dott’s success in France. It has been operating shared e-scooters in Paris and Lyon since Spring 2019, as well as in Bordeaux since 2020, while its e-bikes have been available in Paris, Bordeaux and Marseille since the end of 2021.
Nicolas Gorse, Vice President of Operations at Dott, said: “We are committed to providing pollution-free journeys to help create more peaceful cities. We are very proud to have won these two competitive tenders. With the extension of our service to the entire Grenoble metropolitan area, we want to make it easier for residents to choose more sustainable transport.”
With speeds of up to 25km/h for e-bikes and 20km/h for e-scooters, Dott’s vehicles are an efficient transportation choice. The company’s e-bikes and e-scooters will be operated using the same model as all operations across Europe.
In addition, repairs, maintenance and logistics are handled by a team of in-house professionals at the Dott operations centre (to be located in the city), to guarantee safety, reliability and quality. The vehicles are built to last and can be easily repaired if necessary, and all parts that cannot be reused are recycled.
