Ways Cities are Leveraging Micro-mobility for Good

Micro-mobility–shared scooters, bikes, etc.–is proving fantastic for getting people around, particularly in a COVID world. But a new resource says cities have evolved in the way they work with the vehicles and social good is coming from that.

The Micro-mobility Policy Atlas, developed by the Shared-use Mobility Center, New Urban Mobility Alliance, and World Resources Institute, tracks more than 100 micro-mobility policies in 25 countries, and shows trends, including:

  • Equity mandates and policies resulting in more equitable distribution of micro-mobility throughout cities and surrounding areas.
  • Managing system growth through safety infrastructure improvements.
  • Fleet caps that minimize waste and street/sidewalk clutter.

The trends are growing and will be tracked further through the atlas.  Read more about it here.
