Dott’s shared e-scooters to arrive in Israel with Tel Aviv launch
Dott, a leading European micro-mobility company, today announces the introduction of its shared e-scooter services in Israel in its first market outside Europe.
From today, Dott’s e-scooters will unlock the city of Tel Aviv with the lowest fares in the city, providing a reliable service which will help to create cleaner air and less congestion for residents.
A fleet of 1,800 e-scooters will be available for Tel Aviv residents and visitors, allowing users to benefit from an enjoyable travel experience which makes it easy to discover new areas and unlock new experiences.
Dott is the responsible city partner, which supports regulation to ensure its vehicles are integrated carefully. In major cities across Europe Dott has collaborated with city authorities to adapt its service to meet unique requirements, with slow and no-go zones, allocated or recommended parking spots, and by ensuring availability in areas less well connected by public transport.
Our latest generation e-scooters
With large wheels (12”), front, rear and indicator lights, triple breaking and license plates, Dott’s e-scooters are built with safety in mind. 100% of vehicles are fitted with helmets, exceeding the legal requirements.. Software controlling the e-scooters sets a speed limit of 25kph, as well as incorporating slow and no-zones and providing e-learning modules available through the Dott app to ensure responsible riding.
Specially trained mechanics ensure quality maintenance of vehicles to provide high availability of Dott’s service. Safety is a priority and all charging happens on site to ensure 100% control.
The most affordable prices
Competitive pricing will be the lowest in Tel Aviv at just 1 ILS per minute, with no unlock fee, and great value passes are available by the day (40 ILS for 10 rides) or month (120 ILS 30 rides), to reduce costs for regular riders.1 New riders are being offered their first ride free,2 and Dott will be developing partnerships with local businesses to provide bespoke offers for their customers.
Ben Gailli, City Manager Tel Aviv Dott, said: “Our e-scooters offer the most efficient way to travel across Tel Aviv without causing congestion or pollution and at the lowest prices. We are bringing our experience from major European cities to ensure that our service is carefully integrated into the city, offering a reliable service for our riders whilst respecting other road users and pedestrians.”
The environment and social impact are at the heart of every business decision at Dott. The micro-mobility company is working to reuse, upcycle or recycle 100% of used vehicles and parts, and aims to exceed a five year life-span for its vehicles. Dott is targeting a 100% electric logistics fleet and renewable energy in all its cities. The service is designed to be as accessible as possible, and Dott works closely with local communities, aiming for equal coverage across the areas it serves and partnering with local organizations to help improve the cities in which it operates.
