Customers of car rental firm Sixt will soon be able to book thousands of Tier Mobility electric kick scooters via the Sixt app. Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Cologne, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Bonn and Münster are the first cities to start with more to come.
Now that Tier kick-scooters are legal on German roads, Sixt customers can also book and borrow the light electric vehicles via the Sixt app. This is primarily intended to expand the availability and link it to Sixt’s “extensive customer base”. At the same time, Tier’s electric kick-scooters can still be booked via their app.
Tier plans to successively expand the cooperation with Sixt to other cities and countries. “The demand for e-scooters is growing rapidly in the world’s metropolises,” said Alexander Sixt, Chief Strategy Officer.
Circ and Lime e-scooters were launched in Berlin a few days ago, and Tier Mobility followed suit in the German capital today. Tier also announced a cooperation with the Munich transport company. In Munich, the company will operate 1,500 electric kick-scooters. After paying a flat rate of one euro for a booking, every minute costs 15 cents (9 euros per hour).
With over two million journeys, Tier Mobility is one of the largest e-kick-scooter operators in Europe. Earlier this month, Tier introduced its own electric kick scooter, which the company says will stand out from competing products due to its significantly longer service life, greater comfort and improved safety.
