Dott to launch in GrenobleWinning exclusive license to operate from both e-bike and e-scooter tende
Dott, a leading European micro-mobility company, has won two competitive tenders from the city of Grenoble, authorising it to launch both its e-bikes and e-scooters from 1st July in an exclusive contract.
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 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.
The 17 municipalities are: Corenc, Echirolles, Eybens, Fontaine, Gières, Grenoble, La Tronche, Le Pont-de-Claix, Meylan, Montbonnot, Poisat, Saint-Egrève, Saint-Martin d’Hères, Saint-Martin-le-Vinoux, Sassenage, Seyssinet-Pariset, Seyssins, including also the University and the Hospital campus.
The launch of its service in Grenoble builds on Dott’s success in France. It 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, 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, Dott’s vehicles are an efficient transportation choice. 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.
