Europe’s capitals reimagined to mark EU Mobility Week


Dott, the responsible European micromobility operator, has created a series of visuals showing how Europe’s capital cities could be reimagined with a focus on people rather than cars. The designs are intended to create discussion and inspire a future where city centres are unlocked from the congestion and pollution of private cars. They have been released to coincide with EU Mobility Week, which takes place from 16-22nd September, and incorporates World Car Free Day on 22nd September. The set of images feature a range of ideas designed to improve city living, such as:

  • London: shaded spaces in response to this summer's record temperatures, an integrated performance space, planted greenery and nature and public information screens.

  • Paris: a screen showing the interior of the Opera house, public seating, shade, use of paving and turf

  • Rome: an open air public cafe to admire the famous architecture from, shaded areas, planting and greenery.

  • Brussels: public art and sculpture, open air markets, shops and cafes, floral displays in a reference to Brussels Flower Carpet.

Throughout all graphics, e-scooters and e-bikes are integrated in a responsible way, respecting other city residents. There are allocated parking spots for micromobility vehicles, situated close to public transport hubs, and separated cycle lanes for e-bike and e-scooter riders. Henri Moissinac, Co-Founder and CEO, Dott, said: “Our cities can be transformed if we think about transport differently. Our fleet of shared e-bikes and e-scooters offer an environmentally friendly service for a single ride, or combined with public transport. Supported by the right infrastructure, efficient, safe and affordable travel is possible without needing cars.” Across Europe, more people are choosing shared e-scooters and e-bikes to travel around city centres. The majority (58%) do so to save time,1 and commuting is the most popular reason to use (41%).2 Riders believe their choices can positively impact the city, with nearly half (41%) saying their main motivator is to reduce congestion.2 Around one third (32%) would travel with micromobility more often if there was more safe infrastructure available. The environment and social impact are at the heart of every business decision at Dott. The micromobility company has set out its goals and progress at ridedott.com/sustainability.
