European micromobility provider Dott has expanded its e-scooter services to Stockholm.

A fleet of 1500 e-scooters will be available for Stockholm residents and visitors, allowing users to benefit from an enjoyable travel experience that makes it easier to discover new areas and unlock new experiences.

With large wheels, front, rear and indicator lights, triple breaking and licence plates, Dott’s e-scooters are built with safety in mind. Software controlling the vehicles sets speed limits of 20kph, as well as incorporating slow and no-zones, and e-learning modules are available through the Dott app to improve responsible riding.

Pricing will be SEK2.5 per minute, with a SEK10 unlock fee. Passes are available by the day (SEK79) or month (SEK399) to reduce costs for regular riders.

“Our e-scooters offer the most efficient way to travel across Stockholm without causing congestion or pollution,” said Cedric Borglund Janson, Dott’s area manager for Stockholm. “We are bringing our experience from major European cities to ensure that our service is carefully integrated into the city, offering a reliable service for our riders while respecting other road users and pedestrians.”

Dott prioritises the safety of its riders, other road users and pedestrians, collaborating closely with the cities it operates in to offer a service adapted to the needs of each city. Repairs and maintenance will be handled in-house by specialists at Dott’s warehouses, ensuring safety, reliability and quality. Vehicles are built to last and repaired where necessary, and any parts that cannot be reused are recycled.

The environment and social impact are at the heart of business decisions at Dott. The micromobility company is working to reuse, upcycle or recycle all used vehicles and parts, and aims to exceed a five-year life span for its vehicles. Dott is targeting a 100% electric logistics fleet and renewable energy in all its cities.

The service is designed to be as accessible as possible, and Dott works closely with local communities, aiming for equal coverage across the areas it serves and partnering with local organisations to help improve the cities in which it operates.

Dott was founded by Henri Moissinac and Maxim Romain, and operates over 40,000 e-scooters in cities in Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden and the UK and has been launching a fleet of 10,000 e-bikes since autumn 2021. It has a staff of over 600, with its main teams in Amsterdam, London and Paris.
