New report provides snapshot of shared mobility industry in Europe

Fluctuo, an aggregator of data on shared mobility services, just published the first European Shared Mobility Index, which provides an in-depth overview of shared mobility across major European cities. 

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 and overarching analysis of shared mobility, including 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 major European cities, among which figure several POLIS members:

  • 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)

Over 219 shared mobility services are offered across these 16 cities, totalling 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. 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.
