If you’re an agency or city looking to start a new shared micromobility program, there’s a lot to consider. In addition to sourcing hardware and software, there are organizational choices to consider, staff to hire, and permits to obtain. Equity programs are often an afterthought and until earlier this month, the industry lacked a comprehensive database outlining what other systems have done. Now, thanks to a team of researchers, interested parties can reference a new Equity Dashboard, whereby the equity efforts of one city might pave the way for another.
The research team was led by the University of Oregon’s Anne Brown and Amanda Howell and funded by the National Institute for Transportation and Communities (NITC).
