European micro-mobility operator Dott has announced that it has seen a rapid rise in the use of its e-scooters and e-bikes across Europe as its peak summer season starts. Total rides have increased by 73 per cent in the second quarter of 2022 compared to the first quarter, up by 192 per cent year on year.

The growing rides have been fuelled by sharp growth in new riders, with Dott more than doubling (116 per cent) the number of new riders to its service between April-June 2022 compared to the first three months of the year.

New users have been taking advantage of the efficient travel which allows them to unlock the benefits of their city. While 58 per cent of new riders said that they tried the service to save time, 53 per cent found it fun to ride and 52 per cent found the vehicles easy to use and readily available.

With over 50,000 vehicles in total across major European cities, Dott’s new e-bikes, first launched at the end of 2021, are gaining popularity alongside its e-scooters. Since the start of 2022, rides on Dott’s e-bikes have increased by 180 per cent.

Henri Moissinac, Co-Founder and CEO of Dott, said: “The summer season provides a great opportunity for more people to try our shared e-scooter and e-bike services for the first time. Our riders are quick to realise that our vehicles can transform their travel experience, using our service for efficient, fun and reliable travel on a more regular basis.”

Throughout 2022, Dott has expanded into more new markets, with the cities of Stockholm and Tel Aviv having seen significant growth in use since their launch. Most recently, exclusive tender wins for both e-scooters and e-bikes in Grenoble will provide residents and visitors with sustainable travel across the city.
