SUMC’s Shared Mobility Toolkit is designed to help cities and public sector leaders better realize the benefits of shared mobility.

Shared Mobility Policy Database

Features more than 700 of the most important shared mobility policies, studies and strategic plans in the United States. The database allows cities to access best practices and determine how other local governments are addressing new developments in shared mobility.

Mapping & Opportunity Analysis Tool

Pinpoints shared mobility vehicle locations in more than 50 North American cities. The tool also incorporates census data, transit quality, and other information to help cities better understand where greater service is needed, and what shared modes the market can support.

Shared Mobility Benefits Calculator

Models the impacts of shared mobility growth scenarios. Cities can use the calculator to assess potential decreases in greenhouse gas emissions, reductions in vehicle miles traveled and other benefits from implementing various transportation improvements.

For more information about the Shared Mobility Toolkit, be sure to review SUMC’s companion report, which  provides an overview of each tool, including information on how it was developed, why it is important, and how cities can use it effectively. While the interactive tools are all standalone resources, they are even more powerful when used together as a comprehensive toolkit to help identify opportunities and uncover new local solutions.

The report also features shared mobility opportunities and growth scenarios for each of the 27 Urban Sustainability Directors Network (USDN) study cities that participated in the project to create the toolkit.  These brief synopses suggest where the needs and potential are greatest in each city, what actions can be taken to address them, and what the potential benefits of intervention would be. The report’s appendices also contain detailed methodologies for these analyses. You can access the report here.
