oday, Wednesday, November 22nd, marks the deadline the City of Helsinki has given to operators working in the city to collect all scooters from the streets, according to our insider sources at Bird Co. Dubs plays a crucial role in the hibernation plans of Bird Co., having partnered with them on a micromobility consulting project to store around 3000 EKS. The exact number will be clarified as the hibernation progresses and all scooters are retrieved from the streets.

Since the launch of electric scooters in major cities, a new era of urban mobility has emerged, offering convenience, efficiency, and sustainability. However, as these nimble two-wheeled wonders have taken to the streets, so too have safety concerns. This growing transportation trend has stirred discussions and debates among users, companies operating these vehicles, and governmental legislators alike. While electric scooters promise a revolution in urban transportation, ensuring the safety of riders and pedestrians has become an equally pressing challenge. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the multifaceted world of electric scooter safety, exploring the key issues and solutions at the intersection of innovation, regulation, and personal responsibility.

As the days grow shorter and the temperatures drop, the second season of e-scooter sharing at Dubs draws to a close. With nearly two years under our belts, the signs of wear and tear on our fleet are as evident as the changing leaves. This observation begs the question: what is the average lifespan of an e-scooter in a shared fleet?

Perhaps one of our greatest lessons this season was adopting a proper inventory system and maintaining a clean and organized warehouse. We saw an incredible boost in efficiency, shorter repair times, and a safer workspace.

Whether it’s for your personal electric scooter or an entire fleet of shared scooters, there are some simple practices that help improve the lifespan of an electric kick scooter. The key to ensuring your scooter runs smoothly and safely for years to come is preventative maintenance. By taking a proactive approach you can avoid future costly repairs and enjoy a more enjoyable ride. In this guide, we’ll explore three essential maintenance practices: changing tires, lubricating the suspension, and lubricating bearings.

The days of e-scooters strewn haphazardly on the streets of Helsinki are long gone, thanks to the mandatory parking reform implemented in April. This forward-thinking initiative has not only transformed the city’s micro-mobility landscape but has also brought about a multitude of benefits for fleet managers of e-scooters. With the establishment of designated parking spots, the advantages of this reform are now clear and tangible.

Due to the ever increasing and fast paced world of urbanisation, cities are continously seeking innovative methods to tackle and better current transportation solutions including the integration of micromobility solutions. In this blog post, we explore how data-driven insights are shaping the future of urban planning and paving the way for safer and more efficient commuting options.

In the fast-paced world of micromobility, the Internet of Things (IoT) device has emerged as a game-changer, transforming the way we navigate our cities. The integration of IoT technology with micro-mobility solutions, such as e-scooters and bike-sharing systems, has ushered in a new era of convenience and efficiency. IoT-enabled micromobility devices are now equipped with an array of sensors and connectivity features, allowing real-time data collection and analysis. However, through our own experience of being a fleet manager for Bird scooters, IoT devices boast a lot of connectivity issues deemed to have an unknown cause in our workspace.
