Micromobility is an essential building block to creating a resilient and sustainable transportation system. It allows every American to access affordable transportation regardless of their socioeconomic status or geographic location.
When the pandemic forced public transit ridership to drop, numerous cities saw a drastic increase in the use of micromobility.
With Americans continuing to experiment with smaller, personal-use vehicles such as bikes and scooters, many have learned that these services are helping fill gaps within their commutes, creating seamless and more efficient travel experiences.
Micromobility doesn't only enhance the commute experience but it also creates safer communities in general. Micromobility companies are starting to work with tech providers to deploy smart safety features such as sidewalk detection and speed monitoring to make our roads safer for all. As multimodal transportation increases in 2022, we will see new Micromobility services and technology help us get around.
