Guidelines for Regulating Shared Micromobility

Guidelines for Regulating Shared Micromobility

"Developed for cities, by cities, this guidance outlines best practices for cities and public entities regulating and managing shared micromobility services on their streets."

Key findings

"In 2018, users took 84 million trips on shared bikes and e-scooters in the United States, more than double the number of trips taken in 2017."

"As these systems are operated by private companies using public space, cities must clearly define and regulate their expectations of these companies in order to maximize public benefit."

Cities should consider infrastructure investments, operational requirements, safety provisions, equitable practices, fee structures, public engagement, data management, and technologies such as geofencing when regulating new shared micromobility services.
