Micro-mobility operator Dott has reported a record number of rides in the third quarter of 2022. Throughout the peak summer holiday months of July and August 2022 and the return to work in September 2022, total rides and riders have both increased equally by 57 per cent year on year. 

The biggest monthly increase has been during July 2022, where 81 per cent more riders took 88 per cent more rides in Dott’s cities across Europe compared to the same period in 2021. 

Riders took advantage of the warmer weather across Europe to use Dott’s e-bikes and e-scooters to unlock their city. Average ride distances for the year so far peaked in August 2022, with a distance of 2.4km on e-scooters and 2.9km on e-bikes, as people chose to travel in the open air for longer distances.

Henri Moissinac, Co-Founder and CEO of Dott, said: “Throughout the third quarter, we have seen our rider numbers remain consistently high. With our shared fleet available in many of Europe’s tourist hotspots, we have been able to help visitors discover new places, whilst supporting locals and residents to get around their cities and commute to work.”

This report follows Dott’s surge in micro-mobility ridership in Paris and Brussels in September 2022, when its e-scooters and e-bikes saw a significant boost in ridership, with a total of 59,000 rides having taken place across both cities on 18 September 2022.
