What’s in Store for Shared Mobility in 2020

  • Data sharing — Data is key for cities to better understand how street space is used, improve regulations for new mobility options, and manage operators in the public’s best interest. Los Angeles took the lead on this when it launched the Mobility Data Specification (MDS) to regulate more transparency from operators. Obstacles still exist, however, as not all service providers are willing to comply. But there are proven benefits — Portland used data to identify high priority streets to build better bike infrastructure. Data sharing needs will not go away anytime soon.
  • Shared mobility hubs — Mobility hubs bring a range of transportation options together to make it easier and more convenient for people to access. Minneapolis implemented their pilot hubs in the fall and will be testing them throughout the winter to see how people adopt these options. While free floating operating models offer flexibility to users, having docks or areas dedicated to shared vehicles, regardless of form factor, will make multi-modal trips a much more viable option for users.
