This reference guide is intended to provide government, business and community leaders with an introduction to shared-use mobility and help prepare them to address the rapid changes currently taking place in cities across the nation. Far beyond on-call services such as Uber and Lyft, shared-use mobility includes bike sharing, ride sourcing, public transit, jitney services, commercial delivery services, and many more options.
Public officials will need to make decisions about where, when, and in what form these services are appropriate for their city or region. This guide is intended to help with both definitions and decision-making.
The guide includes:
- Recommended definitions for new shared modes of transportation
- Updates on the latest industry trends
- Analysis of shared-use mobility’s potential and impacts
- Evaluation of changing local government roles and policy choices
- Suggestions for ways to better connect shared mobility with transit
- Recommendations for growing shared mobility services to serve all residents
