Micromobility safety app launched to enable rapid emergency response

  • Date: 01/28/2021

E-scooter operator Tier has partnered with micro-mobility safety app Busby to create a rapid response system for riders involved in incidents on the road.

Liverpool-based start-up Busby works by using the sensors in a rider’s phone to monitor their movement on the scooter. If a Tier rider is subsequently involved in an incident, such as a crash or a fall, the app begins a 30-second countdown to allow the rider to move or respond. If no movement is detected, the rider’s location will be sent to their emergency contact and to Tier’s local city team who can investigate and arrange help as quickly as needed.
