SUMC News and Announcements

Watch the Virtual Shared Mobility Summit Sessions

SUMC Founder and Executive Director Sharon Feigon speaks with Emily Castor Warren, Principal and Director of Policy at Nelson\Nygaard, before the second plenary panel discussion: Long-term Strategies for Transit and Shared Mobility Moving From COVID-19.

When 2020 began, preparations for the 2020 National Shared Mobility Summit were in full swing. It was with great sadness that in light of the then-growing COVID-19 pandemic, we had to cancel the in-person conference and expo. Our Summit—which has become the premier event for discussing and advancing new ideas in shared mobility, bringing together private and public sectors, and networking with industry leaders and associates—could not physically take place.

We quickly pivoted to a virtual event and with great trepidation and determination, we held our two-day event a month later on May 5 and 6. Leading up to it, we held a virtual panel on Partnering for the Public Good based on our previously planned plenaries. Then we updated the themes of our virtual Summit to reflect this critical time.

  • We discussed strategies beyond vehicle electrification for reducing CH2 emissions.
  • We hammered out short- and long-term strategies for transit and shared mobility can move forward from COVID-16.
  • We discovered ways to innovate, despite and because of our situation.
  • We explored the pandemic’s impact on TNCs, micromobility, business models, freight and goods delivery, and more—and mapped out possibilities for new models that can help us successfully reshape transportation to focus on the vision of a multi-modal transportation system that truly works for all.

Our virtual Shared Mobility Summit playlist is a tool for looking forward, not back.


Mobility Justice

“The highways and public spaces that shape our cities were often intentionally built at the expense of Black, Latino, and other minority Americans.” Learn how the history of the built environment and transportation is intertwined in civil rights and racism, and how we can improve our systems to undo the damage and boost livability, in this NPR audio clip.

Tracey Capers from the Bedford-Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation pens an op-ed for Streetsblog NYC that acknowledges the importance of equitable representation and involvement with street safety for Black and brown communities—and explains how Black Lives Matter can enable more “freedom of movement.”

Unequally-applied traffic enforcement and the birth of the Federal Aid Highway Act in America created racial injustice in transportation that perpetuated physical and social barriers—highways and heavy policing—which still target Black Americans today. Defunding the police and redirecting money to end traffic violence in these neighborhoods would be a good first step to tackle the issue.

Boston City Council President Kim Janey and other local advocates call for MBTA buses to be fare-free in a push for more racial justice in public transit as the state Senate sits on the long-awaited $18 million transportation bond bill.

Ridehailing/Carsharing/Carpooling

Uber will now be doing online grocery delivery in Canada and parts of Latin America, giving the mobility company larger reign in the food delivery and transportation industry.

UC Berkeley professor and transportation researcher Susan Shaheen takes a look at the history and future of shared rides and carpooling in Transfers Magazine, comparing how traditional methods of pooled services stack up to ridehailing, public transit, and informal “dollar vans”.

A study published in Nature Energy outlines the importance of electrifying ridehailing vehicles and motivates that the “potential environmental and emission reduction benefits” could hit about three times higher for EVs in ridehailing compared to regular EV usage in California.

ZITY is expanding its electric carsharing service in France with 500 all-EV Renault ZOEs in the western suburbs of Paris.

Bikesharing and Micromobility

Estonian mobility company Bolt will be launching dockless, pedal-assist bikeshare in Paris, with other European cities in the works, as cycling takes off in the region.

Meet the recipients of the PeopleForBikes Foundation and Better Bike Share Partnership’s Emergency Response Grants program and learn how the funding helped nonprofit and city-led bikeshare services serve essential workers with mobility options.

UK mobility company HumanForest is launching 200 dockless shared bikes with pedal-assist tech in London and topping it with 20 free minutes of daily use in an effort to give “free and sustainable mobility to everyone.”

Dutch bicycle-subscription service Swapfiets will be expanding its services to London, Milan and Paris, after successfully entering the Germany, Denmark and Belgium markets, giving users on-demand repairs, replacement, and options such as e-bikes.

Transit

AUDIO: The Economist Radio podcast sits down with Director of Research at TransitCenter Steven Higashide to chat about transportation’s response to COVID-19 and how planning for the bus can make transit networks, and also cities by extension, more dynamic by default.

The ongoing pandemic hasn’t only been tough for public transit, but also intercity bus networks in the US. With budgets strained and ridership thinned out, companies like Greyhound and Coach USA are navigating the health crisis with staggered service restarts while mandating face masks.

In a socially-distanced world, any move to reduce points of touch in public transit can bring reduce the changes of spreading the virus, and PYMNTS dishes out why contactless fares are just the touch-elimination move our transit systems need.

Planetizen has put together a short guide on how transit agencies in the US are handling emergency pandemic response and how that affects service in both local communities and larger regions.

Technology

Autonomous tech startup Momenta, which has backing from Daimler, is working towards the bold goal of having their entire self-driving ridehailing fleet operational without backup drivers by 2024.

Vehicles, in general, can bust down and become completely inoperable well before hitting 300,000 miles, whether that’s by combustion power or electricity. How would our transportation world work and sustain with EVs having “million-mile” batteries?

In the world of freight, Hyundai has just shipped its first 10 XCIENT hydrogen fuel cell electric trucks, coined as “the world’s first mass-produced fuel cell heavy-duty truck”, to Switzerland with plans to dole out 1,600 XCIENT trucks by 2025.

VentureBeat takes a look at autonomous shuttle startup May Mobility and how recent conversations with former employees paint the workplace in an ambitious yet faulted light that pinpoints the many challenges that self-driving tech companies can face.

Sustainability

Transportation and parking researcher extraordinaire Donald Shoup makes the (long overdue) case for congestion pricing in LA, laying out what the city’s 2021 toll pilot program means for traffic in the region’s future.

Drive-in theaters are a common American staple that have persevered over decades of cultural shift. When a pandemic hits, how can all residents safely participate socially-distanced entertainment if they don’t have access to a car. Streetsblog covers why Chicagoans (and others) need more activities that are ped-and-bike friendly. We agree.

Modesto, CA will use a $24.8 million grant to develop more affordable housing options with $10 million of the grant going towards local bike, rail, and bus upgrades to help reduce the effects of climate change.

If you build it, they will use it. Adding new highway capacity in cities tends to spur more traffic while promoting suburban sprawl. A new study out of UC Davis found how environmental reports for five major highway projects failed to properly account for this induced demand, uncovering a long-standing bias in travel demand models.

Watch and Learn from two MOD On-Ramp Webinars

On June 23 and June 30, the Shared-Use Mobility Center hosted the Mobility on-Demand (MOD) On-Ramp Lessons Learned Webinar Series. In MOD for Mobility Integration and MOD for First/Last-Mile Solutions, On-Ramp program participant agencies shared their experiences and lessons they learned developing mobility projects that addressed those goals.

The MOD On-Ramp program, a partnership between the Federal Transit Administration and the Shared-Use Mobility Center (SUMC), served as an incubator to turn innovative mobility-on-demand ideas into implementable projects. For 18 months, SUMC provided technical assistance to six transit agencies across the country to engage local partners and communities, develop business plans, provide technical assistance, and support other project-building strategies.

The Learning Center entry contains both the webinars and the presentations shared by the transit agencies.


Mobility Justice

Check out the latest Makeshift Mobility newsletter from mobility advocate and former Chief of Strategy and Innovation at Seattle DOT Benjie de la Peña that touches on the history of discrimination in transportation and how colonial imperialism in India enabled restrictive mobility choices for Dalits in the caste system.

Streetsblog Chicago’s Courtney Cobbs lays out a few strategies that could help make biking safer and more equitable in the city—and how we can use funds currently spent on police to address active transportation needs in the South side.

Budget-strained transit agencies spend a disproportionate amount of money on law enforcement, argue some transportation professionals and advocates, which adds to a culture of fear, racial abuse and harassment, not equitable transit service. Bloomberg CityLab explains.

LA Metro is looking at ways to reduce and replace armed police enforcement on public transit to combat racial profiling, with an eye on having social workers and mental health professionals or unarmed “transit ambassadors” as the initial safety response.

Ridehailing/Carsharing/Carpooling

In a big move, Amazon is acquiring autonomous vehicle startup Zoox for, reportedly, more than $1 billion and will continue “to help bring their vision of autonomous ridehailing to reality”.

Transportation leaders in Metro Vancouver are calling for the government in BC to create local greenhouse gas emission requirements for the ridehailing industry to help meet climate goals and promote clean mobility.

AAA’s GIG Car Share has officially launched in Seattle with 250 Toyota Priuses, bringing a new community-based program called Gig4Good to the city that will give free driving credits to organizations for local efforts such as food delivery.

St. Louis Metro Transit and ridehailing company Via have partnered up for a new on-demand microtransit service that will bring affordable mobility access to north and southwest St. Louis County.

Bikesharing and Micromobility

Micromobility company Bird has launched a new app called Bird Maps with Israeli navigation startup Trailze that will offer turn-by-turn navigation and trip-planning features to scooter riders in Paris and Tel Aviv.

How can corporations influence street safety and what does that mean for grassroots advocacy efforts in cities? Those are just some questions on people’s minds with Lime’s new advocacy initiative called Lime Action that aims to educate its scooter riders about street safety, roadway violence, environmental sustainability, and social and racial justice.

Scooter companies are gearing up to reintroduce dockless offerings to the streets of Atlanta once again as scooter permits, counting 8 different micromobility operators, go into effect this week through June 30, 2021.

Charge your EV then hop on a shared scooter, all through one app. Energy company Enel X and dockless mobility startup Bird are collaborating to offer the latter’s scooters through Enel X’s JuicePass EV charging app across six cities in Italy.

Transit

Massachusetts Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley and Senator Ed Markey have unveiled the “Freedom to Move Act”, a proposed bill that would use competitive grant funding to help eliminate transit fares in cities all over the state while boosting service and infrastructure upgrades.

The Connecticut DOT will be the first agency in the country to run full-sized autonomous transit buses, with help from Robotic Research, New Flyer, and the Center for Transportation and Environment, and with $2 million in grant funding from the Federal Transit Administration.

Handing out sanitizer, marking off seats, mask checking, overall cleanliness. Paris transit riders are coming back—and other transit agencies can learn from their model.

“It is critical that we shift away from driving single-occupancy vehicles. But fixating on convincing people who drive to switch to transit is almost always done without making service more frequent or more reliable for existing riders.” Read more on why moving away from the “captive” vs “choice” categorization in transit ridership is necessary on Greater Greater Washington.

Technology

Google’s self-driving arm Waymo and Volvo will co-develop a self-driving electric vehicle for ridehailing as part of a newly announced partnership.

Hear the latest podcast episode from Micromobility.io that covers “micromobility, mobility as a service and the interplay between the two” with Transit app COO Jake Sion.

Chinese ridehail giant Didi Chuxing is trying out robotaxis, with backup safety staff behind the wheel, in Shanghai.

Curb management company Coord has chosen four US cities, Aspen, Nashville, Omaha, and West Palm Beach, to establish Smart Zone programs that will use mobility data and digital loading zones to reduce congestion and create safer street environments.

Sustainability

House Democrats have released a transformative plan that, if implemented, calls for the elimination of car pollution by 2035, achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, and implementing environmental justice policy to help marginalized groups that have been historically affected by climate change.

New York is adding 23 more miles of open streets to give pedestrians and cyclists more space in the city and adding nine miles of temporary protected bike lanes to help with social distancing.

California’s Air Resources Board has passed a new mandate that all commercial trucks and vans sold in the state must be zero-emission by 2045 in a bold move to reduce transportation pollution.

Urban heat issues in cities, which are made even more apparent with climate change, cause severe and uncertain heat waves that can harm public health and economic productivity, and create a strain on critical infrastructure in disadvantaged communities. Large swathes of parking space and car-centric design only make these matters worse.

Visit a 2009 Chicago Mobility Hub

The Mobility Hub is an integrated network of multi-modal options accessible for everyone at a safe, comfortable location. Found throughout Europe for over a decade, they were still a burgeoning concept in America when our executive director Sharon Feigon, then CEO Of IGO carsharing, laid out her vision for a Chicago Mobility Hub in 2009.

Rendered by IGO fleet staff member and artist Pete Rangel, this image captures with simplicity how a Mobility Hub can expand mobility options by making them more accessible, how it can serve as a safe community gathering place, even act as a functional tool to “power the grid.”

There is no one-size-fits-all mobility solution. There are many options that, together, can reduce our dependence on personal cars and solo driving. Given that transportation is the leading cause of climate change today, we need to use every tool at our disposal. Learn more about Mobility Hubs in our 2019 resource guide.

Smart Cities Dive Feature on our Virtual Shared Mobility Summit

How do you transition from a physical to a virtual event in less than 60 days and what are the long-term implications? Smart Cities Dive’s Cailin Crowe interviews SUMC Executive Director Sharon Feigon and others on how the pandemic has shaped industry events, and what the future may hold.

Mobility Justice

Jaywalking laws have turned public streets into private havens for drivers ever since the automobile industry lobbied for them in the first half of the 20th century. Now that study after study has shown that these laws disproportionately affect Black and Brown communities, they need to be abolished.

Police enforce traffic safety laws more in greater numbers in minority communities, leading to assumed suspicion, traffic debt, and incarceration—not to mention many tragic instances of unnecessary force. Major policy changes on an institutional level will need to happen in cities to create more equitable streets today.

In Chicago, Uber and Lyft riders are more likely to pay a higher cost for a trip if they are going to or coming from neighborhoods with higher populations of ethnic minorities, according to ridehailing data analyzed from researchers at The George Washington University in DC.

How can defunding police budgets help break the long history of inequities that have targeted Black communities in cities like Baltimore? Giving it to public transportation for better job access would be a great start.

Ridehailing/Carsharing/Carpooling

In a bold announcement, Lyft has promised that “100 percent” of their vehicles will be electric or zero-emission by 2030.

Carpooling has taken a major hit during the pandemic, but DC startup Go Together aims to raise funds and get more schools back on its CarpooltoSchool service as parents look at smaller group rides in our age of social distancing.

Uber has started selling its ridehailing software to transit agencies in California, a first for the company, as part of a new service to diversify its mobility offerings in a time when consumer rides are down across the board.

While the tale of carshare in the US may seem like an agglomeration of difficult starts and shuttered services, P2P carsharing platform Turo shares its recent findings of usership that seem to tell a different story.

Bikesharing and Micromobility

Streetsblog outlines three major signs that show micromobility is poised to hit its stride as cities are seeing a consistent rise in bikeshare and dockless scooter use around the world.

First they envisioned a new way to electrify bikes with their popular Copenhagen Wheel; now they’re launching a shared scooter in the US and Europe. Read about Superpedestrian on Medium.

Vice’s Motherboard takes a deep look into the Uber acquisition of JUMP bikes, formerly Social Bicycles, and how JUMP’s original vision of dockless bikeshare was twisted and altered to fit the profit-over-people nature of 21st-century tech startups.

You can now get daily and monthly passes for Lime’s micromobility offerings in 18 countries around the world, with more global markets set for later this month.

Transit

Stacey Matlen from the City of Detroit’s Office of Mobility Innovation addresses three major goals for transit agencies during the transportation sector’s battle with the ongoing health crisis and how that can create more resilient mobility networks. Read about it on TheCityFix.

Chicago’s CTA and Pace transit will reinstate front-door boarding—and start collecting fares—this Sunday as the city moves through phased reopening and riders come back from the COVID-19 lockdown.

Check out all the latest updates on public transit in the Bay Area and what measures are being taken to ensure rider safety and reliable service on KQED.

“We are facing crises on multiple fronts: a climate crisis, an economic crisis, and a racial justice crisis. The COVID-19 crisis illustrates how these issues converge in our public transportation system and how transportation is central to addressing them all.”

In Securing Safe Transit: Before and after COVID-19, Dream Corp’s Green For All campaign does an excellent job in explaining how public transit is at the core of our most pressing racial, environmental, and economic issues. It then provides a path forward complete with findings from a targeted landscape analysis of transit agencies and a comprehensive set of recommendations.

Technology

Over the next few months, New Jersey Transit will be studying the use of ultraviolet-c rays to disinfect buses during the pandemic.

Mobility software company Bytemark has a new platform for transit agencies that offers trip planning, booking, and paying in one suite that can be configured for seamless MaaS services.

It looks like Google may be experimenting with first/last mile connections in Google Maps to help people plan trips to transit with bike, car, and even ridehail.

Charging dock startup Swiftmile is collaborating with scooter tech company Tortoise to help clean up sidewalk clutter with remote-controlled scooters that can be driven to nearby EV charging docks after a trip.

Sustainability

Check out this feature on maps created by Bloomberg CityLab readers that depict the diversity of visualized experiences people are documenting from their pandemic lockdown and how that shapes the way we see our built environment.

After years of pushing the adoption of EVs, major public transportation initiatives, and improving cycling infrastructure, Norway is set to hit a record low of 48.6 billion tons of CO2 emissions this year after setting the goal in 2012. Great work!

“As I told the Development Director at my city, I could have provided an additional 12 desperately needed small apartments at my site if minimum parking requirements had not held me back.” Read about the constraints parking minimums have on neighborhood-friendly development on Parking Reform Network.

Electric vehicles get a big boost in Germany as the country will now require gas stations to provide charging for EVs as part of a new €130 billion stimulus plan.

Sharon Feigon Talks Microtransit in Undark Magazine

Cities around the world are using on-demand microtransit to serve essential mobility needs during the pandemic. With its ability to fill transit gaps and potentially incorporate technology to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the mode offers big benefits but also poses concerns regarding data privacy, service equity, and the ability to move large numbers of people. Undark Magazine interviews our Founder and Executive Director, Sharon Feigon, in this article that explores the benefits and watch-outs of integrating transit and microtransit into a more responsive system.

Ten Takeaways from the 2020 Virtual Shared Mobility Summit

Sharon Feigon and Chicago Department of Transportation Commissioner Gia Biagi speak before the Commissioner’s opening address at the Shared Mobility Summit.

The 2020 National Shared Mobility Summit LIVE on May 5-6 was filled with two days of virtual sessions, speeches, and discussions about accessible, equitable, and environmentally sound mobility in a pandemic and post-pandemic environment. Even if you missed the Summit, you can still read about what we learned and what we need to do now. From addressing mobility justice head-on to rethinking transit, these ten takeaways are calls to action for the months ahead. Read on the SUMC blog.

Mobility Justice

The bicycle has been a symbol of independent mobility in times of civil unrest and protest throughout decades of social change. As anti-racist action becomes a national imperative, cyclists are reigniting that fervor of two-wheeled unity as people march for Black lives in cities around the world.

Check out this conversation between racial equity advocates on the Canadian Urban Institute’s CityTalk series, who discuss how Anti-Black racism in urbanist practices have resulted in exclusionary measures that continue the cycle of Black oppression in cities.

“Whose Streets? Our streets.” Read about the weight this chant carries regarding personal freedom when navigating neighborhood streets, especially during times of protest, in The New Republic.

Better Bike Share’s latest post aims to give you the necessary resources to dismantle racism in the transportation and planning fields, with important conversations and calls to action from prominent Black advocates, planners, and equity professionals to uproot and restructure society for more equitable civic goals.

Ridehailing/Carsharing/Carpooling

After four years of battling mobility giants Uber and Lyft in the Austin market, ridehailing nonprofit RideAustin is shutting down its operations in the city.

The director of the California Public Utilities Commission has given ridehailing companies in the state a stark reminder of the worker’s compensation deadline on July 1: Classify your drivers as employees or lose your operating authority.

The City of Indianapolis is looking for ways to creatively reuse the electric and digital infrastructure left from the shuttered BlueIndy EV carshare service. The RFI is listed below and submissions are open until August 14.

Tesla has enabled a feature called Car Access that allows US owners to share their vehicles with up to five people using app-enabled unlocking/access similar to carsharing.

Bikesharing and Micromobility

Given the transportation challenges being faced by cities around the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic, European metros are banking on bikeways and cycle infrastructure to help commuters get to jobs as mass transit continues to be a hard sell for the social-distancing public.

DC continues to ramp up biking initiatives in the region to make active transportation options available for everyone, and it’s definitely being recognized—the Capital made the top five in the annual PlacesForBikes city ratings for most bikeable city in the US.

What makes a bikeshare system like the one in city of Hangzhou, China so successful it attracts riders from all areas while creating a safe, connected network where everyone can cycle freely? Residents getting one free hour of bikeshare time could be the answer.

Micromobility startup Spin will be hitting its first international market in Cologne, Germany with shared dockless scooters and plans to cover Dortmund and Esse in the future.

Transit

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have, at last, changed their guidance on using public transportation during the ongoing pandemic after facing backlash and criticism from Transportation for America, NACTO, TransitCenter, the American Public Transportation Association, and others.

Shared spaces, such as public transit, were seen as a natural enemy in the US when social distancing measures started to take hold. Former NYC DOT commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan and Seth Solomonow, Co-author of Streetfight: Handbook for an Urban Revolution, look at global cities with strong, dense networks built for public transit that didn’t see a correlation between COVID-19 cases and using the bus or train.

UK electric vehicle company Arrival is touting a new EV bus design with integrated smart displays for real-time transit information, configurable seating arrangements for better passenger flexibility, and a modular EV platform that can help scale up or down the needs for custom models.

Creating actionable, informed initiatives to protect public transportation is more crucial than ever, and Planetizen has gathered a resource guide on the facts around transit contagion risk and best practices for mobility networks during this health crisis.

Technology

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new platform called AV TEST to encourage datasharing practices from operators and states for autonomous vehicle development and testing, and the platform is completely accessible to the public.

Transportation technology and software company INIT has a new passenger-counting solution for transit that will manage load capacities on vehicles in real-time to calculate percentages of how full they are for safer operations during a time when social distancing is key.

Long Island Rail Road has revamped its TrainTime app to let commuters know about available space on train cars and proper socially distanced platform etiquette to promote safe transit use as New York moves through phased reopening.

Florida’s Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority now has the first inductive wireless charging station on the East Coast, which will be used to power electric buses for the agency.

Sustainability

As a means to create an alternative trail, Chicago has opened up around three miles of streets for bike and ped traffic along the (currently closed) Bloomingdale trail, aka The 606, to encourage social distancing for shared streets.

The Republic of Ireland will be dedicating €360 million annually to expanding biking and walking infrastructure to give active transportation a major boost. Residents can thank Green Party leader Eamon Ryan, a former bike shop owner and prominent cycling advocate.

Our seemingly never-ending health crisis creates a large problem for people who rely on shared mobility to get around as carshare services in cities like Seattle completely shut down and transit critics push people away from crowded buses.

Clear roads may sound like a dream come true for anti-congestion advocates, but as Mashable writes, these stretches of empty roadway could also mean a frightening increase in motorist speeding that can be outright deadly for pedestrians and cyclists.

When 2020 began, preparations for the 2020 National Shared Mobility Summit were in full swing. It was with great sadness that in light of the then-growing COVID-19 pandemic, we had to cancel the in-person conference and expo. Our Summit—which has become the premier event for discussing and advancing new ideas in shared mobility, bringing together private and public sectors, and networking with industry leaders and associates—could not physically take place.

We quickly pivoted to a virtual event and with great trepidation and determination, we held our two-day event a month later on May 5 and 6. Leading up to it, we also held a workshop and two webinars based on our previously planned plenaries. How did it go? Our survey results were very positive about the content and format and we came away with new ideas about how to improve mobility as well as how to hold successful virtual gatherings.

We updated the themes of our virtual Summit to reflect this critical time; we looked at what the new normal in transit might be, and how we can provide the best mobility options in a difficult economy with continually changing travel needs and expectations. We hope that our findings lead to more ways to work together to address critical mobility needs while actively reversing systemic racial injustice, economic challenges, and environmental degradation.

We are planning to keep the conversation going throughout the next 12 months with monthly virtual gatherings—a mix of workshops, webinars, and issue-focused discussion groups. We want to make sure we are expanding our community and giving voice to those that may have been underrepresented in the past. While we speak to the importance of community engagement and needs assessments, we need to live that in the way we examine the essentials of transportation. We are all learning how to work differently in order to successfully reshape transportation to focus on the vision of a multi-modal transportation system that truly works for all.

Take a look at our initial findings, add your comments on our slack channel, and join the conversation. These takeaways, my own and the result of shared insight and strategies, are meant to be acted on, not just considered, right now.

ADDRESS INEQUALITY HEAD ON
COVID-19 exposed the massive inequality and income gaps built into US communities. Low-income neighborhoods, often communities of color, which are located near air and other toxic pollutants, that lack access to fresh food and quality healthcare, and whose residents have low-wage jobs in retail, health care, service, and warehousing have seen higher rates of the COVID-19 virus.

In her opening speech, the Chicago Department of Transportation Commissioner Gia Biagi referred to the Chicago citywide population as, “the human infrastructure.” Neighborhoods that are unequal in terms of economy and health must be prioritized, invested in, and developed. There are no “metrics of equity” as Biagi stated, but through a combination of local outreach and systematic thinking, we must finally start giving everyone the same opportunity to live well.

THIS IS A MOMENT FOR BIG IDEAS
Denny Zane, Executive Director of Move LA, implored the group attending the State and Local Climate Policy session to think about solutions. Citing his long experience in politics, he said, “fortune favors the bold”, that sometimes “it’s easier to do big things than smaller ones”, and that “voters want solutions, not just a list of projects”. And Denny, former Mayor of Santa Monica, California should know. He was the mastermind behind the successful ballot initiative in the city that created a pot of $120 billion to enhance and modernize LA County transit infrastructure over 40 years. He then shared with us the Move LA Vision to pass a Statewide measure allotting $125 billion over 30 years to counteract climate change by creating green jobs to transform the State economy and meet carbon reduction targets—and followed up with practical details and an implementation plan.

WE MUST OVERCOME AGENCY SILOS AND OUTDATED THINKING
Nothing lasting can be accomplished with blinders on. The first step to doing what has not been done before, or pushing through strategies that need to be tried, is broadening our perspective and working together to accomplish our goals. Agencies are defined in title and often in practice, and this takes the shape of one building highways and the other operating transit, yet another managing the streets and another regulating bikeshare. We need an overarching policy to ensure transparent communication, if not cross-collaboration, and at the minimum to prevent departments from working to counteract each other.

SCALE-UP CLEAN, AFFORDABLE, ELECTRIC, AND SUSTAINABLE OPTIONS
Clean mobility can improve the environment and the economy—right now. This powerful truth reverberated as Mary Nichols, Chair of the California Air Resources Board (CARB), gave the opening address on May 6. Rarely in our nation’s history have we had the chance to truly rewrite the transportation paradigm, and in doing so revive an economy desperately in need of new jobs at every level and throughout all regions. The Shared-Use Mobility Center is working to develop clean, shared, and electric mobility in disadvantaged communities in California, through CARB’s Clean Mobility Options program. Learn more on our site.

TRANSIT NEEDS FUNDING, WE NEED POLICY AND WILL
Transportation is the number one source of CO2 emissions in the United States. There is no other way to ensure the livability of our environment than by addressing the main reason we are destroying it: we must take more cars off the road. The most practical way to do this is through public transportation. Stringent sanitation measures can help ensure the safety of mass transport, yet money is spent, disproportionately, on highway spending. We have to push what we know works at the federal level. Insist on accountability at the state and local level. Serve health, safety, and mobility needs in an environmentally sound way. Buying a broken-down automobile should not be the best solution to get out of poverty.

TRANSIT: RETHINK PRIORITY ROUTING AND FREQUENCY
Cities, for the most part, were designed when people worked downtown and lived in surrounding neighborhoods. People spread out over the years into suburbs and nearby towns, and due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, stay-at-home orders have eliminated rush hour as we know it—and this isn’t a short-term phenomenon.

Studies point to increased numbers of people continuing to work from home in a post-pandemic environment. Reduced transit needs during peak hours are coming and we can use these resources, limited as they may be, to allow for more frequent and expanded transit coverage of buses and trains throughout the day. We can increase ridership by focusing on the quality of service.

CREATE LOCAL MOVEMENT FOR ACTIVE TRANSPORTATION
It is good for social distancing and physical health. It saves on gas and helps save the environment. It is accessible to all income levels. For these and many other reasons (including the sheer joy of movement outside in a lockdown), active transportation (biking, walking) has skyrocketed. We can further encourage what has started with the right infrastructure, ample sidewalk space, and plentiful bike and scooter lanes. Let’s make our public way work for all.

FREIGHT AND GOODS DELIVERY IS PART OF THE EQUATION
In the early afternoon of May 5, we held a breakout session with Koloni, Uber Freight, the University of Washington-Urban Freight Lab, the Seattle Department of Transportation, and Bosch eBike Systems. The discussion focused on an element of the mobility system that has become part and parcel of daily pandemic life: freight and goods delivery.

Following the process through the supply chain, panelists discussed ways it can be made more efficient and sustainable, from technology to reduce deadheading for freight, to e-bike last-mile delivery, to common carrier lockers. Overall, it showed the importance of goods delivery and those who deliver them in the shared mobility sector, especially in the post-COVID world.

WHO OWNS THE MULTIMODAL LANDSCAPE? WHO SHOULD?
While we are still headed toward more integration of all the modes, changes in consumer behavior are shifting the modal mix. With private car use on the rise, solo rideshare bookings down, and shared options virtually nonexistent, it remains to be seen what will be temporary and what will be long-term effects of the pandemic.

Multimodal investments indicate that the largest companies are widening their portfolio of services as the industry consolidates. On-demand services are on the rise as a transport for essential workers and as a possible alternative to low-ridership transit routes. As mobility business models change, we have to work out how this is done on the public vs the private side and ensure that the public interest is paramount while including a variety of providers.

MAKE OUR STREETS WORK FOR EVERYONE
Our roads are central in our fight for racial justice and to combat climate change. While we are finally opening some streets to pedestrians and cyclists and closing them for most vehicles, we also need immediate action to ensure that streets are safe for people of color. We can, as a country, no longer invest in highways at the expense of more sustainable forms of transportation with the knowledge that doing so continues to segregate and cripple communities of color as much as it renders us powerless against the devastating climate crisis. Mobility for all necessitates streets for all. That is our charge.

Washington DC Mayor Murial Bowser renamed the street in front of White House ‘Black Lives Matter Plaza’ and D.C. artists painted the words on a street mural stretching over two blocks.

Thank you for the overwhelming interest in Clean Mobility Options

Funds for the California Clean Mobility Options (CMO) Community Transportation Needs Assessment Vouchers have been exhausted. On June 1, the CMO Program Administrator began accepting applications from disadvantaged communities for $50,000 grants to engage residents around transportation challenges and inequities, to be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis.  As of June 2, the $1 million available in this window has been fully subscribed, and more than 20 communities will be receiving funds shortly.

You can still apply for CMO Mobility Project Vouchers to implement zero-emission transit and shared mobility options in underserved California communities when the application period opens—tentatively scheduled for November 2020.

To access technical assistance to develop your Mobility Project Voucher application, please complete this form. For other questions about the program, email info@cleanmobilityoptions.org.

The Clean Mobility Options program is administered by the Shared-Use Mobility Center and CALSTART in partnership with GRID Alternatives and the Local Government Commission.  The program is supported by the California Air Resources Board with funding from California Climate Investments.


Mobility Justice

‘Quick build’ projects that aim to boost walkability, open public spaces, and promote cycling can do more harm than good in disenfranchised communities—if the local public isn’t engaged from the start and their feedback taken into account.

The Black Urbanist Founder and Editor in Chief Kristen Jeffers sits down with Streetsblog to discuss how the built environment in cities can fail to address racial and rural equity and what the term “urbanist” means in the reclamation of public space.

“Just having a bike lane or a sidewalk is not enough to guarantee the safety of a Black person in our community,” said Caila Brown, executive director of Bike Walk Savannah. Read how mobility justice goes hand in hand with racial justice on Connect Savannah.

A diversity statement isn’t enough, say BICPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) leaders as they push for stronger anti-racist action in the transportation landscape and in their communities.

Ridehailing/Carsharing/Carpooling

As most business and public spaces are opening up in China as the country recovers from the coronavirus outbreak, mobility giant Didi Chuxing is seeing ridehailing trips this month hit last year’s pre-pandemic levels.

Uber, on the other hand, is only seeing minimal increases in ridehailing trips with business still down 70% from last year, only a slight improvement from its low point during the pandemic.

Facebook and Paypal have invested undisclosed amounts to Indonesian ridehailing and mobility company Gojek as the Southeast Asian region shows promising growth for digital services and on-demand platforms.

Singaporean carsharing outfit Smove, one of the major players in the country, is shutting down its service with strained financial trouble being the culprit.

Bikesharing and Micromobility

Micromobility company Superpedestrian is launching an EV dockless scooter service called Link after acquiring “substantially all of the assets” of bikeshare company Zagster, spelling the essential end of Zagster’s mark in the mobility space.

A message for cities that have temporarily shuttered bikeshare (and micromobility) services: two wheels aren’t tools for violence, they are integral transportation options for healthcare workers and essential employees.

Detroit’s MoGo bikeshare has expanded into the northwest area of the city and southern Oakland County with 31 stations and 140 bikes, nearly doubling the system.

Toronto announced that it will be expanding its bikeshare system with 1,850 new bikes and 160 new stations (expanding the network area to about 200 square km) to give residents safer and more sustainable ways of getting around.

Transit

If transit access can’t get people who live in far-flung suburbs or more rural areas to jobs, then it isn’t regionally equitable. Crain’s Chicago tells the story of Amorita Falcon and her experience commuting for four hours, round trip, to her job downtown using the bus.

It’s no surprise that public transit is still facing worldwide challenges addressing ridership declines and health safety protocols while functioning as essential transportation for workers. Digital Trends looks at what agencies can do to weather the uncertain future of a post-COVID mobility environment.

New Jersey Transit has a new five-year capital plan, to the tune of around $6 billion, and a 10-year strategic plan to give public transportation a large boost in funding to address train and bus reliability and safety.

As the city moves into a phased reopening, New York commuters are dipping their toes into riding mass transit again with the MTA taking extra precautions to ensure that sanitation and social distancing are a top priority for public health.

Technology

The ACLU has filed a suit against the City of Los Angeles over the Department of Transportation’s Mobility Data Specification platform, accusing the city’s collection of data around EV scooter-sharing services as being unconstitutional.

Google Maps has new features, available in the US and in several countries around the world, that give travelers information about COVID-19 travel restrictions, health safety checkpoints, and transit updates that include any safety precautions such as mask requirements.

The bastion of an autonomous future predicts a world where vehicle crashes are essentially nonexistent, but researchers from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety believe that, after examining 5,000+ police-reported crashes, hitting the ultimate zero fatality rate isn’t such a straightforward approach.

Even though the pandemic has ground many transportation industry projects to a halt, the New York MTA announced that it will complete installation of the new, contactless, OMNY fare payment system at all subway stations and buses by the end of the year.

Sustainability

With retail, manufacturing, and travel down across the board due to the ongoing pandemic, GHG emissions in the US are set to see a 14% decrease compared to last year, according to data from the Energy Information Administration.

What can cities, planners, and developers do to make sure communities have access to affordable living options while receiving the benefits of having access to public transit options for better job and amenity connection? Equitable transit-oriented development (or eTOD for short) could hold the answer.

When the pandemic hit cities across the US, planners and engineers had to make tough decisions on how transportation and traffic networks could be reimagined to create a more resilient system. Now, cities are reworking street design, traffic-calming measures, and infrastructure needs to keep people moving safely while shooting for broader sustainability goals.

Boston-based energy company Enel X has expanded its EV charging network throughout Europe to 30,000+ public charging points, nearly tripling the system, as part of a new collaboration with Allego, Bosch and Innogy.

SUMC News and Announcements

Our Commitment to Racial Justice

From our organization’s start, the mission of the Shared-Use Mobility Center has been to support mobility for all. That is not possible to achieve without racial justice. In this weekly newsletter and other communications, we have focused on elements of a multimodal transportation network without explicitly highlighting the fundamental connection between transportation and social justice. Starting with this issue, we are calling out new and ongoing projects that challenge systemic racism and promote mobility justice under the heading, Mobility Justice. This is but a small part of our renewed commitment.

The efforts of protesters on the streets have shown how action can make a difference and build on the work of social justice activists. We realize that as an organization we need to renew our efforts because black lives matter; because climate change is here and it disproportionately affects communities of color; because America was built on the backs of slave labor and we have yet to meaningfully make amends. The stories we highlight will be part of a multi-pronged effort to use our position to help uproot an unjust system and support the creation of equitable transportation and human landscapes. Join us.

A Bikeshare Victory

Last week we commented on the truckloads of JUMP bikes captured in a Durham, NC recycling plant. We’re happy to announce that as a result of YOUR efforts in contacting Uber, the company told us that the 5,800 remaining bikes will be saved and donated to nonprofits, who will then make them available. We did it. Let’s do more.

New on the MOD Learning Center

Village of Bedford Park Last-Mile Mobility Plan
Getting to work is a challenge for the nearly 30,000 commuters to the Village of Bedford Park. With rail and transit leaving gaps, a shared mobility solution was desperately needed. Beginning in 2018 and using funds from a Cook County grant, the Shared-Use Mobility Center, the Antero Group, and the Active Transportation Alliance conducted multi-faceted research, engaged the community, and issued a 4-part action plan, which the Village is now in the process of implementing.

Read the Case Study

We’d also like to highlight a few resources, previously published, that can help us create a more just transportation landscape. More to come!

Improving the equity of bikeshare programs
Public-private partnerships to meet equity goals


Mobility Justice

History has shown that decades of redlining in lower-income Black and Brown neighborhoods has led to major disparities in economic development, healthcare, and transportation. This has left a legacy of harm that continues to this day, with few improvements in access to healthcare, jobs, and resources. This can change, and it must.

Fighting structural racism includes acknowledging the inequality that Black Americans face in our economic and health systems on a day-to-day basis, which becomes even more apparent—and devastating—during a pandemic.

“Back in 2013, the League of American Bicyclists reported that “the fastest growth in bicycling is among the Hispanic, African American, and Asian American populations. Yet these groups may find cycling to work more problematic.” Read more about the ‘invisible cyclists’ and how mobility planning can better realign to serve Black communities.

Hear from Warren Logan, Oakland’s Policy Director of Mobility and Interagency Relations for the Mayor’s Office, on how goals can be planned towards addressing and building for racial equity within a mobility framework, on Streetsblog.

“No streets are safe until they are safe for all”. Greater Greater Washington writes about the privilege of safe streets that do not fully extend to Black Americans.

“How can people of color effectively lead their communities on climate solutions when faced with pervasive and life-shortening racism?” – Climate Scientist Ayana Elizabeth Johnson on fighting racism to fight climate change on The Washington Post.

BikePortland shares some thoughts and strategies for more equitable transportation activism that communities can use to fight racism in open streets and public space discussions.

Ridehailing/Carsharing/Carpooling

Lyft is reporting an increase in rides by 26% in May, compared to April, since cities have started reopening measures but total ridership is still down 70% year over year.

The BlueIndy EV carshare service shut down in Indianapolis last year because of financial struggles and trouble with low usership. Now, the cars seem to be headed for the scrapyard as the city decides the future of the charging station network left behind.

New Egyptian ridehailing service Dubci launched its app in the country in partnership with Move It, another local service, positioning itself as the cheapest ridehailing option around.

Partnerships and Programs

Possibly, maybe some good news: a new ~$500 billion bill from the US House Transportation Committee aims to rebuild the nation’s decaying infrastructure, with a strong emphasis on public transportation, rail funding, and new GHG emissions standards.

Southeast Asian ridehailing company Grab is partnering with the Philippines Department of Agriculture to provide on-demand delivery for local and ethically-sourced produce around Manila.

The US and UK might soon see more sustainable first/last-mile mobility options, such as more comprehensive bikeshare networks, as part of a new initiative between Mobility company Ride On and strategic advisory group Enzen.

Bikesharing and Micromobility

Chicago must wait a bit longer before scratching its dockless scooter itch as the second-round pilot for scooters is delayed until operators are seen as financially viable during the ongoing pandemic, according to the city DOT Commissioner Gia Biagi.

Hear stories from first-time cyclists, essential workers, and seasoned riders as they share their experiences with bikeshare and two-wheeled mobility in different parts of the US as part of National Bike Month.

BMW and Daimler ridehailing joint venture FREE NOW is collaborating with micromobility startup Voi to offer dockless scooter integration in the FREE NOW app in Hamburg, with Berlin and Munich services coming soon.

Transit

The Federal Transit Administration has announced $891 million in allocated funding to 12 transit infrastructure projects through the Capital Investment Grants Program to help increase access to jobs and critical services through public transportation.

Check out Politico’s roundup of transportation news and stories from around the US on how transit systems are dealing with both protests and the pandemic.

Recent Cities Today Institute roundtables touched on the importance of modal shift to active transportation options, and giving them more space to safely operate, during a time when public transit refocuses operations to adhere to social distancing measures.

Technology

COVID-19 has caused a massive shift in how people move around in cities and communities. Read about a few ways the ongoing pandemic crisis has affected EU and US mobility tech on The Next Web.

Jacksonville Transportation Authority and Florida State College at Jacksonville will be expanding the Authority’s autonomous vehicle program on the university’s campus, which includes an expansion of the Ultimate Urban Circulator Test & Learn Program.

The  FABULOS project, a partnership between six cities in the EU to accelerate autonomous vehicle development in the region, will bring self-driving shuttle pilots to Estonia, Finland, Greece, the Netherlands, and Norway.

Sustainability

A win for environmentalism! New Jersey has become the first state in the US to incorporate climate change subjects in the K-12 curriculum, starting in September 2021.

Costa Rica’s congested capital, San Jose, is starkly different from the ecological wonders of its beaches and waterfalls. A plan to become carbon zero by 2050 attempts to fix that, literally, from the ground up.

Don’t drive through my dining room! Plantizen documents the current (and hopefully lasting) trend of ‘al fresco streets.’

Welcome to the Shared-Use Mobility Center’s weekly guide to the most impactful news, thought-provoking articles and innovative technologies that are shaping our transportation future. We believe in sharing information, just like sharing cars, bikes, and scooters, so if there’s anything additional you’d like to see, just drop us a line.

SUMC News and Announcements

From our Founder/Executive Director:

Earlier this week, an event came to light that is garnering national attention—and rightfully so. Truckloads of Jump bikes were tossed at a recycling plant. @CrisMoffitt, a Florida entrepreneur, received the videos from a friend who works at the Durham, NC facility.

In the midst of a global pandemic where there is a shortage of bikes large enough to warrant a New York Times feature; where the need for safe, affordable, equitable transportation is larger than ever; in a climate being destroyed and where alternatives to cars are desperately needed; there is no excuse for this kind of behavior. Both Uber and Lime have issued statements: Lime denies responsibility and Uber states, inaccurately, that only older models are being recycled. Regardless, neither company has shown a heart or soul in a time of crisis.

Clearly, this was a situation where expediency outweighed doing the right thing. Often it takes some effort to work out the details and this was a situation that needed that effort. This should get corrected immediately before more bikes are destroyed. Those bikes should be made available to cities, nonprofits, and individuals who need them. The Shared-Use Mobility Center stands ready to help with distribution. Tell Uber and Lime to donate the bikes!

Thanks!

Ridehailing/Carsharing/Carpooling

The ongoing COVID-19 crisis has completely shifted the operations and business models of big startup companies like Uber and Lyft, leading them to a point of ‘sink or swim’ where they need innovative solutions to stay viable.

European ridehail/mobility company Bolt has boosted its valuation to €1.7 billion after a recent funding round from investment firm Naya Capital, with the new funds aimed at increasing ridehailing, dockless scooter, and food delivery initiatives.

Zimbabwean startup Vaya Africa has launched an electric taxi-hailing service and EV charging network in Zimbabwe with a fleet of Nissan Leafs and solar-powered charging stations.

Partnerships and Programs

NACTO’s new best-practices guide is designed to help municipalities develop strong and equitable strategies for street redesign and adaptation in response to the pandemic.

LA County officials have approved a plan for a “Slow Streets” program that will help bring more walkable, bikeable public spaces for better social distancing to underserved and unincorporated communities in the region.

Mobility solutions company Spare has teamed up with Lubbock, TX’ Citibus to launch a paratransit/microtransit hybrid service, that will complement the city’s traditional transit network, giving residents more on-demand options.

Bikesharing and Micromobility

Populus has a new guide too that aims to help cities and micromobility companies manage data-sharing practices and curb space challenges.

A proposed partnership between Austin’s Capital Metro and the MetroBike bikeshare system would bring them under the same transit network, expanding bike options in areas with limited transit access.

BlaBlaCar users in France now have more multimodal options with the edition of a dockless scooter app as part of a new partnership with Swedish micromobility startup Voi.

Transit

Tasked with running the New York City Transit Authority as interim head, Sarah Feinberg jumped in at the dawn of the COVID-19 outbreak, but how does her historied experience in the public sector translate for the troubled transit network during evergrowing uncertainty?

Amtrak wrote a letter to Congress stating that the company will need $1.5 billion in additional funding from the government to maintain “minimum service levels” for 2021.

Resilient transportation networks are an important piece of the puzzle for response and recovery strategies that give people better mobility access during crises. Read about equitable transit access for New Jersey on NJ Spotlight.

Technology

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has given EasyMile the green light to restart autonomous shuttle operations in the US as part of the new Safety Passenger Enhancement Plan for wider self-driving vehicle development.

According to early reports, Amazon is in the late stages of acquiring self-driving vehicle tech company Zoox at less than the startup’s $3.2 billion valuation.

A new project in the UK led by Midlands Future Mobility is creating a route for real-world self-driving vehicle tests on about 300 km of roads around central Birmingham.

Urban Sustainability

NY Mayor De Blasio’s plan to open around 100 miles of the city’s streets to pedestrians for more open, public space will be hitting its 40-mile mark at the end of the month, but this plan doesn’t account for many low-income neighborhoods, according to a map from Trust for Public Land.

Transit consultant and advocate Jarret Walker dives deep into the rapid change of rush-hour ridership in public transportation and how the “fall of the peak” could be a benefit for how transit networks function in the future.

Check out Eno Center for Transportation’s latest feature on Congestion Pricing in the US and how, if used effectively, it can reduce traffic crunches in cities while cutting emissions and roadway deaths for safer and cleaner streets.

NEW on the MOD Learning Center: 

Third Installment of the May 2020 COVID-19 Crisis Impact on Transit & Shared Mobility

Our latest case study status update focuses on recovery. Read how Public Transit, Micromobility, TNCs and Carsharing, Autonomous Vehicles, and Paratransit are using newly-minted best practices to adapt services to meet social distancing and sanitary regulations while taking action to move turnstiles, ensure bookings, maintain operations and meet their bottom line as the country reopens.

This is the third installment of SUMC’s ongoing effort to explore how cities and transportation sectors are impacted by the novel COVID-19 coronavirus. The first status update, published April 8th, 2020, highlighted some of the ways public agencies and shared mobility operators responded to the initial weeks of the outbreak. The second update, published April 23rd, was organized by mode and explored the trends that emerged through the month of April, when most stay-at-home orders were in effect and cities established more comprehensive plans to address the crisis.

The Shared-Use Mobility Center joins other Chicago transportation and equity organizations in efforts to keep transit cuts from widening existing racial and disability divides

A coalition that includes the Active Transportation Alliance, the Center for Neighborhood Technology, and the Metropolitan Planning Council, sent a four-page letter to the Regional Transportation Authority, the Chicago Transit Authority, Pace, and Metra calling for transparency and community engagement in shaping routes, that transit be categorized as an essential public good, increased accessibility for riders with disabilities, increased coronavirus testing and adequate personal protective equipment for front-line transit workers, and reformed fare policies, including subsidies for low-income riders. Read more in this article from the Energy News Network. 


Ridehailing/Carsharing/Carpooling

In a move to reduce harmful GHG emissions from light-duty vehicles, which amount to 1% of the State’s GHG emissions in total, California will require Uber and Lyft to offer more electric cars to ridehail customers.

The widespread lockdown has kept ridehail apps quiet, with human consequences. NPR reports 3,000 layoffs at Uber.

Take a look at the post-coronavirus future with Via in this article from Forbes that highlights the ways the company is working with public transit worldwide.

Partnerships and Programs

The City of Miami and DHL have partnered up to pilot e-assist cargo bikes in the city to help reduce pickup and delivery emissions. Three cheers for sustainable delivery.

LA Metro will now be using Transit, the trip-planning and mobility app, as the agency’s official app for public transportation information and wayfinding as part of a new collaboration.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan, along with Transport for London, has announced a new plan to transform parts of the city center into “one of the largest car-free zones in any capital city in the world” in a bid to increase biking and walking while maintaining social distancing measures.

Stagecoach and ViaVan (Via’s microtransit offshoot with Mercedes-Benz) have launched a new demand-responsive transport service exclusively for essential National Health Service workers in the UK to offer safe, flexible, and efficient mobility to and from hospitals.

Bikesharing and Micromobility

As the world restructures transportation to maintain social distancing during the ongoing pandemic, the rising interest in bikes and e-scooters shows the potential that micromobility and active transportation has at making up for recent transit cuts in many cities.

Mobility data startup Fluctuo looks at six strategies that operators and cities can follow “to build resilient shared mobility solutions for the near future.” Check them out on Medium.

A new study out of the University of Washington shows that in US cities with bikeshare systems, bike commuting rates have increased by as much as 20% during the past decade.

A virtual valet, but for shared scooters! As part of an Atlanta pilot, teleoperators can remotely control a dockless, shared scooter to you for pickup and from your destination point after your trip. The pilot is a collaboration between EV scooter-sharing startup GoX, micromobility tech company Tortoise, and local tech incubator Curiosity Labs.

Transit

Public transit has seen a radical change in ridership, operations, and safety measures in the US since the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis. Now, agencies are struggling to maintain functional systems while keeping riders six feet apart.

Even in these troubling times, Cincinnati voters have opted for two new tax levies that will use a large portion of the estimated $130 million a year in revenue to expand public transit options in the area.

Pedestrian Observations digs into the effectiveness of reducing the spread of coronavirus on public transportation through social distancing and how other cities have tackled this issue through more practical measures such as mandatory face masks.

The fight against the worldwide pandemic and climate change has one key solution that, even in it’s current state, still stands a chance to turn the tables for the better: public transportation. Read more about the future of transit and what it means for the environment on Railway Age.

Technology

Who has the right to know how transportation data is obtained, used, and shared? As the battle rages on between municipalities, mobility startups, and data-privacy advocates, Greater Greater Washington surveys the scene.

Autonomous vehicle deployments and services are being used to transport medical supplies and deliver food to essential healthcare workers, and the public, in China as COVID-19 lockdown restrictions are eased. Read more on MIT Technology Review.

A new tool for Series-ER-equipped, hybrid-electric, transit buses has been developed, as part of a collaboration between EV solutions platform ViriCiti and BAE Systems, to auto-switch the bus’ engine on or off based on predefined, geofenced areas. Why? To help reduce air pollution while extending electric travel time.

A big milestone for EV charging: Wenatchee, WA’s Link Transit has successfully hit a milestone of 50 megawatt-hours of wireless energy delivered for its electric bus fleet, making it the first EV bus operator in the Americas to do so and the first in the world to do it in under two years.

Urban Sustainability

The recent short-term drop in CO2 emissions can be partially attributed to the decrease in surface-level transportation that stems from the COVID-19 pandemic. This temporary drop, however, could have lasting effects on the way we structure our cities for crises, sustainability, and climate change.

Chicago active transportation advocate and Streetsblog Chicago Editor John Greenfield pens a letter to Crain’s emphasizing the necessity of more pedestrian and cycling infrastructure and how better active mobility options are far from “hard-to-justify”.

Check out the latest Streetfilms video that advocates for opens streets in all cities to help keep restaurants afloat with outdoor dining areas, reclaiming spaces for people to foster more vibrant communities in these troubling times.

Even with traffic down across the world as people follow stay-at-home orders, ground-level ozone (aka smog) levels have barely decreased compared to the last several years, reports NPR. The culprits: diesel trucks, factories, and power plants.
