Dott, Lime and Tier unveil 11 steps to enhance e-scooter service in Paris


Dott, Lime and Tier, the three micromobility operators in Paris, today unveiled 11 measures to improve e-scooter integration following a request for proposals by Paris City Hall on September 29.

The steps have been developed to enhance safety, integration into public space and sustainability. Two of these measures are already in place: age verification and e-scooter registration plates.


The proposals made to the City of Paris are:

  • User age verification: already established and will cover 100% of the fleet from Monday 28 November

  • Vehicle registration plates: increasing rider accountability through easier reporting of highway code violations

  • Banning offenders: Removing users who repeatedly violate the highway code

  • Funding an experiment using camera technology to detect highway code violations

  • Testing sidewalk detection technology to prevent sidewalk riding

  • Education campaign produced by all three operators to raise awareness of highway code laws and responsible use

  • Creation of a ‘micro-mobility observatory’ to produce independent data on uses and accidents, to be shared with city authorities

  • Using technology to prevent overfilled parking spots and doubling the number of patrollers to move vehicles from full spaces.

  • Financing infrastructure which benefits e-scooter users by increasing the fee paid to the City of Paris

  • Price incentives to encourage users to choose walking over very short trips

  • Financing long-term rental of adapted e-scooters for disabled users in collaboration with OMNI


Henri Moissinac, CEO, Dott; Wayne Ting, CEO, Lime; and Lawrence Leuschner, CEO, Tier said:


“Shared e-scooters now offer an efficient, highly regulated transport service which is being used by hundreds of thousands of Parisians. We have listened to the requests from the City of Paris and believe that we have provided robust and effective responses. These have been shared with the Paris City Hall and we are waiting on a response. We are already introducing two strong improvements, with vehicle registration plates and user age verification now in place.


“We have no doubt that Paris will maintain its leadership in the fight against pollution and the promotion of sustainable transport. We are not preparing for a ban, which would be a step backwards when other major global capitals are making this type of service permanent.”
