Dutch Micromobility company Dott has won a competitive tendering to introduce its e-bike sharing service in the city of Marseille, France, making it the only micromobility provider present in France’s three largest cities – Paris, Marseille and Lyon.

A total of 1,000 shared e-bikes will be available in Marseille from January 30, providing an efficient way to move across the city, free from congestion and without causing pollution.

Henri Moisinnac and Maxim Romain, co-founders, Dott issued a statement reading, “We are happy and very proud of this decision. Thank you to the City of Marseille for its trust in our expertise, we are looking forward to bringing Marseillais a quality, accessible and reliable service.

“This decision recognises ‘the Dott system’, which we have used since Dott’s creation. We are a mobility operator, not a digital platform. We operate the service ourselves everyday, with our own teams who are all colleagues and company shareholders. We are responsible, reliable and always seeking environmental excellence.”
