The latest European Shared Mobility Index has been released, examining market evolution in a range of European cities.
The European Shared Mobility Index provides a quarterly snapshot of the market across 20 cities, selected to highlight diversity in size, geography and market characteristics.
The report provides an overview of changes in the market of shared cars, mopeds, bikes and scooters, and key actions taken by cities. Ride-hailing services (e.g. Uber), car-pooling (e.g. BlaBlaCar) and long-term rental services (e.g. Swapfiets) are not included.
Julien Chamussy, CEO of fluctuo, stated: “This is the 5th edition of the European Shared Mobility Index, and we are proud that it has become an industry reference. By sharing this data with public transport authorities, city officials, journalists and investors, we actively support the development of shared mobility services.”
This year there are 310,000 more shared vehicles compared to the same period last year — equating to a 21% growth in trips between January-March. Shared scooters have seen the largest rise, with +177% year-on-year trip growth.
The French Capital, Paris tops the list with the highest number of shared vehicles — followed by Berlin and Milan. There are 56,000 more shared scooters than 12 months ago, as well as 28,000 more shared dockless bikes and 12,000 shared mopeds.
In Brussels, TIER joined Bird, Bolt, Dott, Lime, Pony and Voi in a hyper-competitive market; meanwhile, in London — a far younger market — Dott & Human Forest launched electric bikes in the boroughs of Hammersmith & Fulham. Shared bike use has been supported by the city’s expansion of active travel infrastructure. In Milan, the City Council approved a large cycling network plan of €240m.
Vehicle and trip data was sourced directly from operators, open data sources, mobile applications and public announcements. Industry averages and some data extrapolation were used to fill the remaining data gaps. Operators who contributed financially to this report have not received any favourable treatment.
