London, 10 September 2020 – TIER, the leading European micro-mobility operator, was selected by the City of York for a year-long e-scooter trial to run the game-changing technology on its streets.
The first e-scooters will be deployed at the University of York in a few weeks, offering residents a new, green and Covid-safe mode of transport for getting around the city. Discussions are taking place as to whether York Hospital will also be able to host the scheme
The Department for Transport-approved scheme will initially see up to 100 e-scooters deployed, with more e-scooters and TIER e-bikes to come. Renting an e-scooter in York will cost riders £1 to unlock the vehicle and 15p per minute travelled.
