Ireland’s first e-scooter trial has today launched across the five campuses of Dublin City University. Launched by Minister Hildegarde Naughton, this e-scooter research pilot project will involve the collaboration of four organisations: Europe’s leading e-scooter operator TIER; Irish micromobility tech platform Luna; the Insight SFI Research Centre For Data Analytics; and Smart DCU (a district of Smart Dublin). The trial comes in parallel with moves to make e-scooters street-legal across Ireland.
TIER and Moovit, an Intel company, a leading Mobility as a Service (MaaS) solutions provider and creator of the #1 urban mobility app, are announcing a partnership that offers users more convenient first and last mile options. With a shared vision to get more cars off the road, Moovit will show users where nearby TIER scooters are available in real-time in 77 cities across 13 countries including Germany, France and the UK.
TIER and Google Maps are teaming up to expand everyone’s access to sustainable, easily accessible and multimodal mobility solutions. Starting today, TIER offers a new option when planning routes for the ‘first and last mile’ in 11 major European cities. Riders will be able to locate nearby TIER e-scooters directly from Google Maps, along with helpful information like a cost estimate and anticipated arrival time.
TIER starts a partnership with Nunam, a German-Indian impact-driven start-up company that is advocating for a green power supply in rural India. Used e-scooter batteries are turned into new energy storage systems to extend their lifespan, improve their environmental impact, and support local organisations in India with sustainable second-life battery solutions.
