Leading ride-sharing firm Dott achieved a record number of rides last year, almost doubling trips taken in 2021.
The total number of rides on Dott’s shared e-scooters and e-bikes grew by 94% compared to 2021, with a 92% jump in the number of riders.
Dott says its dockless e-bikes and e-scooters travelled a combined 74 million kilometres, with the average distance of each ride 2.2km - that’s 11% more than in 2021.
The firm expanded its operations last year by launching its first e-bike scheme in the UK in London last year, complementing the e-scooter rental fleet it runs in the capital.
“We are seeing a shift from occasional, leisure use to becoming a regular and everyday solution for travel in our cities,” said Dott co-founder and CEO, Henri Moissinac.
“Fuel price rises and increased living costs are leading people to seek affordable and sustainable travel solutions. Our e-bikes and e-scooters provide a cheaper and more environmentally friendly solution than cars, without sacrificing time or efficiency.”
