One year after its launch, TIER is planning further expansion

The environmentally conscious transport solution has since become available in Siófok as well, and the company also wants to contribute to reducing car traffic in other cities. The experiences of the first year were extremely positive, as the application had more than 110,000 users in Hungary, 80 percent of whom were local. The vehicles of the world’s leading micromobility service provider are well suited to the Hungarian transport system, which the usage data also shows.

TIER offers an easily accessible alternative for everyone, which is an excellent complement to public transport in urban environments. With a service designed for the last kilometer of everyday journeys, the company aims to contribute to the development of urban transport culture and to the reduction of car traffic and the associated emissions.

According to TIER data, this alternative form of transport was already popular among Hungarians in the first 12 months, who on average start more than 1,400 rentals per day and travel nearly 2.2 kilometers with the environmentally friendly e-scooter between the designated mobility points . Users traveled a total of 1,076,512 kilometers on Hungarian roads, which is almost three times the distance between the Earth and the Moon, and would be enough for up to 10,000 trips from Budapest to Siófok. The outstanding success of the service is indicated by the fact that nearly 80 percent of the users are local and have rented an e-scooter on average 4.5 times, which clearly shows that TIER has become part of everyday transportation in our country. In the first year, the total travel time was 5,872,432 minutes, which is equivalent to 11 years, that is, it is as if someone had been rollerblading continuously since the release of the video game Minecraft in 2011.

“We are very proud of the results we have achieved in the one year since our launch in Hungary on September 9, 2021. Our e-roller service quickly became extremely popular in Budapest and Siófok, and in recent months more and more new people have tried the service, many of whom have become regular users”

he said Tímea Lendvai, Regional City Manager of TIER.

“It is important to point out that in addition to the capital, our first rural launch was also very successful, TIER also operates profitably in Siófok, and we hope to soon be able to present our climate-neutral micromobility solutions in several rural towns.”

As part of the company’s entry into the market, it also opened a development center in Budapest, after the acquisition of the Makery software development agency, one of the first TIER Tech Hubs was established in Hungary. Over the past year and a half, Hungarian specialists have continuously optimized the application of TIER, working on the built-in map and parking solutions, among other things, so that they are perfectly suited to the conditions of Budapest.

“From our point of view, TIER’s involvement in Hungary is very successful, we work together with the international team on global initiatives and participate in the integration of all new service areas or new solutions. Accordingly, we are constantly growing and looking for talented product developers.”

said Balázs Zsédely, director of TIER Tech Hubs.

TIER’s service is currently available in two cities in Hungary, Budapest and Siófok. The company’s goal is to continue to grow in the second half of 2022 and the following years and, like other European countries, to play a leading role in the micromobility sector in our country. Thanks to the company’s expansion and technological developments, in addition to the most modern e-scooters, electric bicycles may soon be available in the Hungarian fleet as well.

TIER aims to further strengthen its market position worldwide in 2022 and to launch its sustainable service in new cities in Europe and Hungary. The expansion in Siófok showed that Hungarian users are happy to try micromobility solutions, they fit well into the existing local transport networks.
