Micromobility – defined as shared bikes, e-bikes and e-scooters – has the potential to deliver substantial benefits to consumers and businesses around the world, including efficient and cost-effective travel, reduced traffic congestion, decreased emissions and a boost to the local economy.
INRIX Research analyzed trillions of anonymous data points from hundreds of millions of connected devices to rank the top American, British and German cities where micromobility services would have the most potential to reduce vehicle trips.
INRIX Research found that shared bikes and scooters could replace nearly:
- 50% of short-distance (0-3 miles) in vehicle trips in the U.S.
- 70% of short-distance vehicle trips in the U.K.
- 60% of short-distance in vehicle trips in Germany
Trevor Reed, Transportation Analyst at INRIX, discusses the findings of the report further, which you can read in his blog.
