E-mopeds, in addition to e-scooters, can now be rented in the TIER app in Berlin, with other cities to follow in the coming weeks.
TIER Mobility, the European provider of micromobility solutions, has started to build its multimodal offering by entering the market for e-moped sharing.
Two months after the acquisition of the electric mopeds from the Berlin-based company Coup in February 2020, the launch of TIER’s multimodal offering in Berlin is said to mark a milestone in the company’s history.
TIER’s long-term goal is to be able to offer cities and their citizens end-to-end mobility solutions from a single source, which will reduce inner-city car traffic and support the ongoing transformation of transportation. In addition to Berlin, the e-mopeds will start in two other German cities in the coming weeks.
Lawrence Leuschner, CEO and co-founder of TIER Mobility, said: “The fact that we add e-mopeds to our offering and become multimodal is a very important step in building a platform that provides end-to-end mobility solutions which are in line with demand and offer a variety of different means of transport. In the current situation, the e-mopeds serve our customers as an additional means of travel, which allows for physical distancing and can be used to cover longer distances than, for example, with an e-scooter.”
TIER has also launched a special offer for all users in Germany and Norway who are looking for additional ways to avoid crowds and want to move safely through their own city without having to wear a mask. With the offer “Commute with TIER”, holders of subscription tickets for public transport (e.g. monthly, annual or job tickets) can receive 40 free unlocks worth €40 by uploading a picture of their subscription ticket to the website. The 40 unlocks reportedly support a normal five-day commute, to get to and from work for one month with a TIER scooter or moped.
TIER stated that it will continue to extended safety precautions, following World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines, as well as local policies.
