Guidelines for the Regulation and Management of Shared Active Transportation

Guidelines for the Regulation and Management of Shared Active Transportation

This document provides guidance for cities and public entities as they look to manage and regulate Shared Active Transportation Companies that are not otherwise managed through competitive procurement processes or contracts. It focuses on clearer and more formal management of public-use mobility options that are not created under the auspices of a public entity. The regulatory focus of this document is not based on the technology or the business plan. Rather, as businesses operating on city streets, Shared Active Transportation Companies need to be overseen and regulated by public entities when they are not otherwise managed through existing processes.

Key findings

Shared Active Transportation rentals should be regulated similarly to other businesses.

In places where Shared Active Transportation companies propose to conduct some or all of their business from private property, local zoning may apply.

Policy areas where all cities should be in alignment include: oversight & authority, data standards, and small vehicle standards for the shared-use context.
