There are now dedicated parking spots to park your Dott in Lyon as part of a trial that will run up until March 15th! You can find them on the app map – they’re visibly marked with a blue “P”.
You’ll only be able to end your ride in these dedicated parking spots. When you end your ride, you’ll be asked to take a photo of your properly parked scooter. Keep in mind, if you try to park anywhere else, the app will prompt you to move to a dedicated parking spot to end your ride if you’re not in the right spot. You can find dedicated parking spots on the map before you start your ride to avoid any relocation fees.
We’re trialing these in Lyon’s 7th arrondissement to improve the parking of our vehicles in and around Lyon. We want to work with riders to avoid badly parked scooters, to make walkways and passageways safer for non-riders and people with reduced mobility. Providing dedicated parking spots will help prevent Dott vehicles from being parked in the following places:
- In the middle of the sidewalk or bike lanes
- On private property or private driveways
- On wheelchair ramps
- In areas that need to stay free for safety reasons, like hospital entrances
- In no-park zones (these are shown on your in-app map).
This new rule only applies to Lyon’s 7th arrondissement. As this is a trial to improve our service, we would love to hear from you. You can send thoughts, experiences, or feedback to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
