Bike Share and Shared Micromobility Initiative

debug msg: this block is Large Text Block, Left Aligned

With over 207 million trips taken in the U.S. since 2010, bike share and shared micromobility have rapidly emerged as new transportation options that can increase cycling, improve urban mobility, and bolster public transit usage. These systems can also play an important role in cities’ safety, livability, and sustainability efforts by making it easier for people to get around without a personal vehicle.

To facilitate conversations between peer cities around this emerging field, NACTO holds roundtables, workshops, and webinars, and conducts research on best practices and challenges in regulating shared micromobility systems.

This work is made possible by the Better Bike Share Partnership and by ClimateWorks.
