Eight micro-mobility companies have formed a coalition in Europe to claim their seat at the transportation planning table.

Bird, Bolt, Dott, FreeNow, Lime, TIER, Voi, and Wind formed Micro-Mobility for Europe (MMfE), to join policy discussions and help build a framework for micro-mobility across the continent. Some European nations have adopted micro-mobility slowly and some not at all–Copenhagen, notably, banned scooters after complaints about cluttered sidewalks, and England legalized rental scooters last year but privately-owned devices remain banned on city streets; there is little enforcement of those rules.

Leaders of the new coalition say they hope to use data and industry trends to help shape micro-mobility policy and adoption and work toward zero-emissions transportation. Read the whole story here.
