Shared Mobility Pilot Program Summary Report

Shared Mobility Pilot Program Summary Report

"The City of Santa Monica designed a pilot program to test shared electric scooters and bikes operated by private companies, using a flexible approach that could be responsive to community needs, technological advancements, and a nascent and evolving industry."

Key findings

"Nearly half (49%) of shared mobility trips replaced trips that would have otherwise been made by car, either driving alone or ride-hailing using Lyft or Uber."

"People used shared mobility devices most often for short work-related trips (29%), recreation (26%), eating out (14%), to get to/from home (11%), and shopping (8%)."

Moving forward the city is considering strategies that address: public right-of-way management, rider behavior, equity and access, device design and maintenance, effective management, and volatility management.
