Micro-mobility service provider, TIER enters Saudi Arabia

TIER, the world’s leading shared micro-mobility provider, announced the launch its e-scooter and e-bike service in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in partnership with Sela Sport Company, the first fully-fledged sports marketing management firm in Saudi Arabia.

TIER e-scooters and e-bikes are available to visitors during Jeddah Season, a citywide art, culture and entertainment festival which promises 2,800+ events over the course of two months, starting from Monday May 2, 2022, as well as across various areas in Riyadh, following a successful 2021 Riyadh Season.

Amir Melad, General Manager, Middle East of TIER, comments, “This is yet another significant milestone for TIER. To enter another country in the Middle East and provide residents and visitors of the Jeddah Season and Riyadh with an accessible, reliable transport method, is directly in line with our continued mission to change mobility for good. This launch has been made possible thanks to our strategic partnership with Sela Sport Company, allowing us to provide TIER e-scooters and e-bikes at the Jeddah Season and in Riyadh, following a successful Riyadh Season 2021. Our launch in Saudi Arabia has come at the right time as TIER’s e-scooters and e-bikes allow residents to travel longer distances using a sustainable transport method. This is just the beginning for Saudi Arabia, as we are aiming to launch e-scooters and e-bikes across other cities.”

The TIER e-scooter will consist of the latest model, the TIER 5. The new scooter model is designed for frequent urban use and has a service life of 5 years while effectively having an unlimited lifespan due to entirely modular, replaceable, and repairable components.

The e-bikes have pedal assistance up to 25 km/h. Each pedelec is equipped with a practical basket for storing luggage or shopping as well as a charging phone holder for easy navigation.
