Eight operators of E-scooters in Europe have formed a new coalition MicroMobility for Europe (MMfE) to promote the development of zero emission urban transport across the continent.
Founding members are Bird, Bolt, Dott, FreeNow, Lime, TIER, Voi and Wind.
MMfE will promote and support the development of a coherent policy framework in Europe, which it hopes will ensure micro-mobility solutions flourish in European cities and support the rapid transition to zero-emission urban mobility.
“Micro-mobility has revolutionised urban mobility and established itself as an essential alternative to personal car use” said Catriona Meehan, Co-Chair of the coalition and representative of Wind.
“The coalition is a key milestone in working together as one industry towards a healthier, more sustainable and less congested future for European cities”.
And with more and more local authorities working to integrate micromobility into their transportation ecosystem, MMfE claims data generated by micro-mobility providers helps cities to better understand, regulate, and plan for traffic flows, use of public infrastructure and space as well as necessary changes to improve road safety and mobility services in line with future mobility needs.
MMfE Members currently operate in over ten EU countries across more than 100 European cities.
