Webinars  

From Confrontation to Partnership: City Regulation of Micromobility

Transportation Research and Education Center (TREC) 
November 15, 2019 | 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM | Register

It has been more than two years since shared scooters first appeared in Santa Monica, California and more than four years since the first dockless bikeshare bikes appeared in China. As shared micromobility has experimented in its deployment and operations across the globe, cities have also been experimenting with ways to regulate and manage this phenomenon in a way that best achieves public outcomes. But how do we best protect individual rights' while still protecting the right-of-way?

This seminar will discuss experiences from cities with micromobility programs and considerations for agency staff and elected officials when launching and overseeing a program, including: data sharing and privacy, goal setting, approval approach, equity targets, caps, fees, safety, and approaches for minimizing negative impacts.
