Dott, the responsible micromobility operator, today unveils new images showing the impact of parked cars, which dominate public space in cities across Europe.
The visuals have been released ahead of World Bike Day (3rd June), to encourage people to think about how cities could be transformed if more people made alternative transport choices.
To help people across Europe discover the ease and efficiency of shared e-bikes, Dott is offering 50% off two e-bike rides to all users this World Bike day.
Demand for Dott’s shared e-bikes is growing as people increasingly take advantage of their effectiveness for travel across city centres. In the first quarter of 2023, there was a 77% increase in e-bike use across all Dott markets based on the number of both rides and riders. The average distance travelled had also increased, by 12% to 2.86km compared to Q1 2022, as riders benefit from effortless travel for longer
Henri Moissinac, Co-Founder and CEO, Dott said: “World Bike Day is an opportunity for us to think about how we can transform our cities by increasing bike use. For too long, our cities have been centred around cars. We can change that by improving infrastructure, and making it easier and safer for people to choose environmentally friendly transport such as shared e-bikes for travel in their city centres.”
The environment and social impact are at the heart of every business decision at Dott. The micromobility company has set out its goals and progress at ridedott.com/sustainability.
