Tier Mobility launches public consultation for e-mobility in York

Tier Mobility is urging York residents to offer their views on e-scooters and e-bikes as part of a new public consultation.

Tier is currently running York’s e-scooter trial and as part of the new consultation, participants will be able to use an interactive map to share comments and add images about parking, user behaviour and rider experience of the York e-scooter trial. 

The feedback will be shared with City of York Council to inform the future development of micro-mobility in the city, ensuring that both users and non-users in the local community are able to voice their needs and help inform decisions that will impact the service. 

Alongside the consultation, Tier will also be running an in-person session with Jessica Hall, York’s City Manager, and Sight Loss Councils in the new year.

The session will discuss parking and incidents of pavement riding to help Tier understand how they can further mitigate any negative impacts from micromobility use on visually impaired people in the community. 

Cllr Andy D’Agorne, deputy leader and executive member for Transport at City of York Council, said: “This is an important opportunity for residents to shape the scheme and help make it an even better fit for our city, whether or not they expect to use the service themselves.

“I’m glad to see Tier continuing to welcome the input of all residents. This consultation will help Tier improve the service in York to ensure that even more residents are able to consider this sustainable and convenient mode of travel as an attractive part of their travel options.”

Georgia Yexley, head of cities for UK and Ireland of Tier, said the consultation follows on from the one-year anniversary of the York trial, that will run until at least March 2022.

She said: “As the sole operator for York, we want to ensure that we are providing a first-class service that not only supports green and accessible local travel, but crucially also suits the needs of the local community. 

“With the trial running until at least March 2022, this consultation will help Tier continue to provide a safe, sustainable and inclusive form of transport as part of the urban mix in York.”
