VAIMOO takes part in the first “European Shared Mobility Index” published by Fluctuo, leading aggregator of data on shared-mobility services. The European Shared Mobility Index offers the first comprehensive snapshot of an industry that is redefining urban transport. Focusing on 16 diverse European cities, it provides in-depth analysis of shared bike, scooter, moped and car services.
This is the first in a series of quarterly reports that will benchmark industry activity, market trends and performance metrics across Europe’s shared mobility sector.
The European Shared Mobility Index monitors the following cities:
- Paris and Bordeaux (France)
- Madrid and Barcelona (Spain)
- Berlin and Hamburg (Germany)
- Milan and Rome (Italy)
- Brussels (Belgium)
- Warsaw (Poland)
- Oslo (Norway)
- Rotterdam (the Netherlands)
- Stockholm (Sweden)
- Prague (Czech Republic)
- London (UK)
- Vienna (Austria)
In these 16 cities, there are 219 shared mobility services on offer, for a total of 235,000 vehicles available (end of March 2021). Around 13 million trips were made in the month of March alone.
2020 has been a difficult year for shared mobility services, impacted by the near total halt in services from March to May, the strong drop in tourism activity and the return of lockdown measures in the fall.
“Despite the difficulties that shared mobility had to face in 2020 – underlines Matteo Pertosa, CEO of VAIMOO – Fluctuo’s report shows how the sharing market is currently in a phase of exponential growth, opening new scenarios for multimodality and integration with existing transport networks. An evolution that will proceed at a fast pace in the coming years, involving both large and small urban centers”.
So what does 2021 have in store for the industry? The first quarter is traditionally the weakest in terms of ridership but it’s a good indicator of the sector’s dynamism as operators prepare for the coming season, adjust the size of their fleets and launch in new markets.
