Brussels / Belgium
E-scooter operators have come together to form a new coalition, Micromobility for Europe (MMfE), which launched officially on 2nd February 2021.
Comprised of eight founding members, Bird, Bolt, Dott, FreeNow, Lime, Tier, Voi, and Wind, the coalition aims to contribute to the development of a coherent policy framework in Europe that will ensure micromobility solutions flourish in European cities and support the rapid transition to zero-emission urban mobility.
At the forefront of the digital and transportation revolutions, members of MMfE work to address issues like congestion and the tailpipe emissions associated with urban travel, together with the cities in which they operate, to ultimately transform urban mobility.
“Micromobility has revolutionised urban mobility and established itself as an essential alternative to personal car ownership and use,” said Catriona Meehan, co-chair of the coalition and representative of Wind.
“The coalition is a key milestone in working together as one industry towards a healthier, more sustainable and less congested future for European cities.”
“As the large majority of public space is dedicated to (car) infrastructure we need to rethink how public space in cities is used, and we look forward to contributing to this important discussion,” added Alexander Jung, co-chair of MMfE and representative of Bird.
The launch of this coalition addresses a gap in the representation of the industry in the transport and mobility policy discussions and will provide the views, expertise and experience of the shared micromobility industry.
