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 is working with leaders in St. Paul/Minneapolis to develop a shared mobility action plan that will increase alternative transportation usage in the region, reduce car ownership and ensure low-income populations and neighborhoods benefit from expanded mobility choices.
