The German shared mobility platform Tier plans to introduce 1 500 shared e-bicycles in Brussels. The first vehicles are available since Wednesday, and the vehicle fleet will expand further in the coming weeks.
Mid-February, micro-mobility provider Tier launched hundreds of new shared e-scooters in Brussels. In the meantime, the company has more than 4 000 of those vehicles riding around in the 19 municipalities of the Brussels Region.
Number two in Brussels
With the announced plan, Tier will become the second largest shared mobility provider in the Belgian capital. In first place of ranking sits the Dutch Dott, with a fleet of 6 300 e-scooters and e-bikes.
Apart from Tier and Dott, Bolt is active in the city with its free-floating vehicles. The Estonian company, recently launched 900 e-bikes in the city to celebrate its first anniversary on the Brussels market.
Other shared mobility providers in Brussels are Blue-Bike and Villo!, but they offer shared bikes with fixed standing places. The Belgian Billy Bike, however, stopped its activities a few weeks ago.
23 000 shared vehicles
According to Brussels Mobility, the city’s actual shared mobility offer contains more than 23 000 e-scooters, bicycles, and motor scooters from nine different shared mobility providers.
Tier claims to be the largest micro-mobility provider and operates in 175 cities and 19 countries. The company has a fleet of over 135 000 e-scooters, e-bikes, and e-mopeds. It’s Tier’s ambition to encourage people to use alternative means of transport for short distances.
