Micromobility is a transportation option that can be used for a variety of trip types, from short commutes, to first- and last-mile connections with transit, to inter-/intra-neighborhood trips. Micromobility refers to small, lightweight devices that:
- Typically operate at speeds below 25 km/h (15 mph)
- Can be human-powered or electric
- Can be shared or personally owned
- Are ideal for trips up to 10 km.
The Maximizing Micromobility report analyzes strategies cities can employ to integrate micromobility and pre-existing public transit systems. By doing so, these cities can build more efficient, affordable, and low-carbon urban landscapes for residents.
