The Shared-Use Mobility Center (SUMC) is a public-interest partnership working to foster collaboration in shared mobility (including bikesharing, carsharing, and ridesharing and more) and help connect the growing industry with transit agencies, cities and communities across the nation. Through piloting programs, conducting new research and providing advice and expertise to cities and regions, SUMC hopes to extend the benefits of shared mobility for all.

Populus is a platform that helps cities and private mobility providers deliver safe, equitable, and efficient streets through better data and analytics. Trusted by public agencies large and small, the Populus data platform integrates big data on shared services (carsharing, ride-hailing, bikeshare and scooters) to monitor operator compliance and help cities make data-driven policy and planning decisions. Founded in 2017 by MIT and UC Berkeley transportation PhDs with over a decade of experience building software to simulate the future of cities, Populus is headquartered in San Francisco, CA.

Bird is a last-mile electric vehicle sharing company dedicated to bringing affordable, environmentally friendly transportation solutions to communities across the world. It provides a fleet of shared electric scooters that can be accessed via smartphone. Birds give people looking to take a short journey across town or down that “last-mile” from the subway or bus to their destination a way to do so that does not pollute the air or add to traffic. Bird works closely with the cities in which it operates so that Bird is a reliable and affordable transportation option for people who live and work there. Founded in 2017 by transportation pioneer Travis VanderZanden, Bird is headquartered in Venice, Calif., and is rapidly expanding across the world.
