Dott, the responsible European micromobility operator, has seen growth in both rides and riders, reaching record levels at the start of 2023. The number of rides taken on Dott’s shared e-scooters and e-bikes between January and March 2023 grew by 20% year on year, with 23% growth in the number of riders. 


The biggest monthly increase was in January, with a 35% increase in the number or rides taken by 39% more riders. More people choosing two-wheels to travel in the winter months shows that Dott’s shared vehicles are being relied on as an everyday means of travel, rather than a leisure activity for warmer weather. This is supported by peak travel times between 17:00-19:00, and 08:00-10:00 on weekdays. 


Riders are travelling for longer distances on Dott’s service. Average ride distance rose by over 12% across the first quarter of 2023 compared to 2022, reaching 2.3km in March, for a duration of 11 minutes


Henri Moissinac, Co-Founder and CEO, Dott, said: “Across all our markets, we  continue to see a shift from occasional use, to providing a reliable and efficient solution for everyday travel. Seeing such significant usage increases during the winter months shows that as our service matures, shared e-scooters and e-bikes are increasingly the preferred way for people to move around their cities, all year round.” 


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.
