European micro-mobility operator Dott has announced an expansion of the e-bike and e-scooter information available in Google Maps, making it easier for more people to discover shared vehicles as an efficient way to travel across cities.

Dott’s shared e-bikes and e-scooters are now available through Google Maps in more cities across France, Italy, Spain, Finland, Belgium and have recently been launched in new countries such as Sweden, Israel and the Netherlands. When planning a journey, users can find Dott’s e-scooters and e-bikes as a travel option, along with estimates for cost and travel time.

The latest additions follow existing integration between the micro-mobility operator and Google Maps, which have already been in place across Paris, Brussels, London, Rome, Cologne and Warsaw among others.

When searching a journey, Google Maps displays an option for the micro-mobility company, which features more details showing the closest available vehicle, walking distance and battery status. Riders are then directed to the micro-mobility company’s app, where they can then make the journey and choose to pay per trip or by using a pass to save money on more frequent travel.

Stephan Croix, Chief Marketing Officer at Dott, said: “Bringing Dott information to Google Maps has been a great way to demonstrate the benefits of our service to those researching their travel options. By extending our integration to more cities, we hope to make it easier for more people to discover how Dott’s e-bikes and e-scooters can be the most efficient choice to unlock everything their city has to offer, avoiding congestion and without causing pollution.”

The Dott and Google Maps apps can both be downloaded through the Apple Apps store and Google Play.
