The State of the Micromobility Industry
The North American Bikeshare Association (NABSA) published a first-of-its-kind report in December 2020 detailing the state of the bikeshare industry as of 2019.
Written with Toole Design and the Transportation Sustainability Research Center (TSRC) at the University of California, Berkeley, the report's findings data on the [physical activity and carbon emission reductions achieved by micromobility options like electric bikes and scooters, docked bikes, and dockless bikes.
An article by Kristin Musulin shares news of the report and insight into the findings.
"The assessment is the first of its kind in North America to show aggregated metrics of the micromobility industry at-large, according to NABSA. The report points to 264 cities in the U.S., 17 in Mexico and 11 in Canada that had at least one bike-share or e-scooter system in 2019," explains Musulin.
The 2020 report is expected for publication on a much earlier timeline in 2021, speaking to the novelty of the effort. Musulin reports that NABSA is planning to release a follow up with 2020 data in summer 2021.
