European micro-mobility company Dott is working with Google Maps, aiming to make it easier for more people to discover its shared vehicles to travel across cities.
When planning a journey, users of Google Maps will now find Dott’s e-scooters and e-bikes as a travel option, along with estimates for cost and travel time.
The feature is now available in the UK as well as Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Poland and Spain. Dott’s e-scooters can be discovered in all of the cities it operates in, and e-bikes are shown in Paris initially, followed by Rome, Milan and London as they are introduced in those cities
When searching a journey, Google Maps displays a Dott option, which features more details showing the closest available vehicle, walking distance and battery status. Riders are then directed to the Dott app where they can make the journey and choose to pay per trip, or by using a pass to save money on more frequent travel.
“Working with Google Maps will help us to show the benefits of shared micro-mobility to a larger audience,” commented Henri Moissinac, Co-Founder and CEO, Dott. “Users can now easily see that Dott’s e-scooters and e-bikes provide efficient travel across a city, avoiding congestion and without causing pollution. By comparing journey time and price against other options at a glance we hope to encourage more people to switch to sustainable travel.”
The Dott and Google Maps apps can both be downloaded through the Apple Apps store and Google Play.
