TIER Mobility, the micro-mobility solutions, is on a mission to change mobility for good, relieving cities from emissions and congestion. Recently, the company has acquired 5000 e-mopeds from Coup, including the charging infrastructure, in an attempt to build multimodal offering.
Friendly solutions to reduce inner-city car traffic!
The rationale behind this step is to be able to offer cities comprehensive mobility solutions, which will help bring about a real transition and pivot in urban traffic. Such multimodal and environmentally friendly solutions will help reduce inner-city car traffic and meet people’s daily mobility needs.
For the uninitiated, Coup had operated a fleet of around 5,000 e-mopeds in Berlin, Paris, and Madrid. At the end of November, Coup announced that the service would be discontinued.
Starting in Berlin from May!
TIER will now create the technical conditions to enable the rental of e-mopeds in addition to the existing e-scooters in the TIER app. The service is scheduled to start in Berlin in May 2020. Notably, TIER sees tremendous economic potential for the operation of the new e-moped fleet.
Lawrence Leuschner, CEO and Co-founder of TIER Mobility, said:
This is a great story for TIER and a very important step in building a multimodal platform. We have gained valuable experience with e-scooters and can now use this effectively in the field of e-mopeds. Many customers want a slightly faster vehicle for medium distances of 4 to 10 kilometers. Now we can offer these people a very good deal with high-quality vehicles.
