Tier Mobility has partnered with Zipabout to link e-scooter and e-bike journeys with rail in London and York.
The partnership means that anyone opted in to receive journey information from Zipabout’s rail clients, including National Rail Enquiries, c2c, EMR and LNER, can now be directed to Tier e-scooters and e-bikes for the final leg of their journey in York and London.
The partnership will see Tier integrated into the wider London and York public transport networks on the app, with e-scooters and e-bikes appearing alongside other transport modes such as bus, taxi and walking routes.
As an added incentive to select a sustainable mode of last mile transport through Tier, passengers arriving at relevant stations will also receive a voucher offering them 25% off their first five e-scooter and e-bike journeys.
Georgia Yexley, Tier general manager UK & Ireland, said: “Even the smallest changes to travel habits can make a significant impact.
“integrating e-scooters into journey planning services, alongside our voucher incentive, will encourage the behavioural change we need towards sustainable travel.
“By replacing more short car journeys with Tier’s e-scooters and e-bikes, both London and York will benefit from reduced inner-city congestion and improved air quality, helping to create healthier, greener communities and reach net zero goals.”
