Dott e-bike and e-scooter

The city of Grenoble has awarded micromobility company Dott the contract to supply the city with both its e-bikes and e-scooters from July.

Dott will be the sole provider of 2,100 e-bikes and 2,100 e-scooters across 17 municipalities as well as the university and hospital areas.

The company says that deployment of shared service on this scale is a first in France and will offer residents a simple, efficient and accessible service for their daily transport needs. 

Dott’s has been operating shared e-scooters in Paris and Lyon since Spring 2019, as well as in Bordeaux since 2020. Its e-bikes have been available in Paris, Bordeaux and Marseille since the end of 2021. 

Nicolas Gorse, vice president of operations at Dott, said: “We are committed to providing pollution-free journeys to help create more peaceful cities. We are very proud to have won these two competitive tenders. With the extension of our service to the entire Grenoble metropolitan area, we want to make it easier for residents to choose more sustainable transport.” 

With speeds of up to 25 km/h for e-bikes and 20 km/h for e-scooters. Packages are available offering lower costs for regular users. 

Dott’s e-bikes and e-scooters will be operated using the same model as all operations across Europe. Repairs, maintenance and logistics are handled by a team of in-house professionals at the Dott operations centre (to be located in the city), guaranteeing  safety, reliability and quality. The vehicles are built to last and can be easily repaired if necessary. All parts that cannot be reused are recycled. 

In January, Dott revealed it had seen e-scooter and e-bike trips increase by 130% year-on-year across all its markets combined in Europe in 2021.
