Dott and TIER Mobility have announced that they have been selected to operate shared e-scooters for an additional four years in the City of Lyon, France.

The City of Lyon first launched a tender for e-scooter operators in 2020 to regulate the vehicles and improve integration into public spaces. Dott and TIER are the two providers that had been selected, operating with allocated parking, as well as safety and environmental commitments for the past two years.

The latest tender at the end of 2022 had more demanding criteria, with a key focus on improving safety and sustainability, with the two micro-mobility operators once again being selected and winning an extended, four year contract.

Residents of Lyon have widely adopted shared e-scooters, with over 450,000 unique users in the City of Lyon during 2022. In order to support emissions free transport and improve the sharing of public spaces, the most recent tender focuses on four key issues: respecting public spaces, personal safety, the environment and social commitments.

Valentin Lungenstrass, Deputy Mayor of Lyon responsible for Mobility, Urban Logistics and Public Spaces, said: “Shared e-scooters offer transport solutions to residents and visitors. The two selected operators will offer very comprehensive services, with a particular focus on the safety of users and non-users, integration into public space, and the lifespan of their vehicles. I am delighted with their commitment to creating responsible employment by providing opportunities for people who were out of the job market.”

“With a new authorisation extended to four years, the city re-affirms the usefulness of our service as an essential lever of creating a more sustainable environment, in particular to reach its objective of climate neutrality in 2030. Our local team is doing its utmost to support and accelerate this transition by delivering the best level of service to the people of Lyon,” said Franck Guerniou, City Manager Lyon at TIER.

Manon Pagniez, Regional Director of Dott France, said: “We are very proud of the confidence in our service, once again granted by the City of Lyon. We have combined responsibility and safety in an ambitious plan at the request of the city authorities, who are demanding and supportive partners. We will extend the lifespan of our e-scooters through a unique refurbishment project, to be presented in the coming weeks, and re-focus our efforts to reach the ‘vision zero’ road safety objective.”
