Dott, the responsible micromobility operator, has been awarded a four year contract for 2,000 e-scooters in 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 was one of two providers 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, continuing to improve safety and sustainability, with Dott 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. To support emissions-free transport and improve the sharing of public spaces, the most recent tender focused on four key issues: respecting public space, 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.”
Dott, alongside Tier, were selected for commitments to improving safety and sustainability, and awarded four year contracts.
Manon Pagniez, Regional Director, 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 refocus our efforts to reach the ‘vision zero’ road safety objective. We are ready to serve the city and people of Lyon for four more years, helping the city to reach its carbon neutral objectives.
