E-scooter operators have joined forces to form the Micro-Mobility for Europe (MMfE) coalition to create a single voice to help transform urban mobility in Europe.

 

The eight founding members of Bird, Bolt, Dott, FreeNow, Lime, Tier, Voi, and Wind aim to contribute to the development of a coherent policy framework in Europe that will ensure micro-mobility solutions can “flourish” in European cities and support the rapid transition to zero-emission urban mobility.

 

Top priorities

 

MMfE has identified urban mobility, data governance and circular economy as top priorities to ensure that shared micro-mobility is an integral part of EU policy developments in the coming years.

 

Working with the cities in which they operate, members will address issues such as congestion and the tailpipe emissions associated with urban travel. The coalition said that for Europe to meet its ambitious emissions targets, more needs to be done at a “sustained pace”.

 

“Micro-mobility has revolutionised urban mobility and established itself as an essential alternative to personal car ownership and 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”.

Members of MMfE operate in over 20 EU countries across more than 100 European cities. More and more local authorities are working to integrate micro-mobility into their transportation ecosystem. The 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.

 

“As the large majority of public space is dedicated to (car) infrastructure we need to rethink how public space in cities is used, and we look forward to contributing to this important discussion”, added Alexander Jung, co-chair of Micro-Mobility for Europe and representative of Bird.

 

Following the publication of the EU’s Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy and given the changes in mobility the pandemic has triggered, Micro-Mobility for Europe is keen to engage with the commission and EU policy makers to contribute to Europe’s recovery efforts as well as the green and digital transitions.
