European micro-mobility operator Dott has reported a rise in demand for its shared e-bikes and e-scooters throughout 2022. With more people choosing sustainable vehicles to travel across their cities, the operator delivered a record number of rides, almost doubling against 2021.

The total number of rides on Dott’s vehicles have increased by 94 per cent compared to 2021, with an increase of 92 per cent in the number of riders. Over 74 million kilometres was travelled across all trips, which is equivalent to going around the earth 1,866 times, or 195 trips to the moon.

In a year of significantly increased fuel prices, Dott’s electric vehicles have provided people with a low cost and environmentally friendly solution for travel in city centres. The average trip distance was 2.2km, 11 per cent more than in 2021, and lasted 11 minutes.

With rising inflation and the cost-of-living putting people’s finances under pressure, more people are using passes to ensure greater value. In total, 41 per cent of trips now take place using a pass, with usage moving from occasional to regular. In addition, the peak time for use was during the morning commute between 08:00 to 10:00.

Henri Moissinac, Co-Founder and CEO of Dott, said: “We are seeing a shift from occasional, leisure use to becoming a regular and everyday solution for travel in our cities. Fuel price rises and increased living costs are leading people to seek affordable and sustainable travel solutions. Our e-bikes and e-scooters provide a cheaper and more environmentally friendly solution than cars, without sacrificing time or efficiency.”
