The Shared-Use Mobility Center works with cities and regions across the nation to develop shared mobility action plans that help reduce reliance on private autos, mitigate traffic congestion and emissions, and expand mobility options for all. Drawing on original research, statistical modeling, and decades of experience in shared mobility operations, SUMC’s plans serve as a catalyst to help cites establish a vision, set mode shift goals, and chart a path forward toward a more sustainable future.
Developed with input from numerous regional stakeholders, SUMC’s Shared Mobility Action Plan for Los Angeles County is designed to help the region capitalize on its expanding public transportation network and address ongoing challenges related to greenhouse gas emissions and traffic congestion. Following the release of the plan, SUMC has also continued to lead stakeholder engagement efforts in Los Angeles to build support for expanding shared mobility.

With assistance from the McKnight Foundation, SUMC worked with leaders in the Minneapolis-St. Paul region to develop a Shared Mobility Action Plan for the Twin Cities to help scale up shared mobility and public transit to head off congestion and other challenges related to impending population growth, and maintain the region’s affordability, livability and freedom of movement. The plan also features several strategies to help ensure more transportation options reach disadvantaged neighborhoods. For more information, read SUMC’s news release.
