Tier's lessons from the world's scooter capital.
Earlier this year, Paris said “non” to scooter chaos and adopted a heavily regulated approach instead, handing out only a few licences for electric-scooter operators to deploy.
Now, those licences are coming into play, and Berlin-based Tier Mobility is getting ready to grow its presence tenfold in the next month.
The company, one of three that are now allowed to operate in the French capital, will deploy 4,500 more of its scooters onto the streets of Paris, on top of its 500 existing vehicles. Its rivals, Uber-backed startup Lime and Amsterdam-based operator Dott, are also allowed 5,000 “trottinettes”, the French word for the scooters, each.
