Research Report 674 Mode shift to micromobility

Published: | Category: Inclusive access , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

The performance of the transport network can be improved by anticipating the impacts of new micro-mobility technologies and how the introduction of new modes may be managed to optimise benefits. 

In this research transport modelling, based on several assumptions about micro-mobility, suggested higher usage of shared paths and separated cycle facilities than for forecasts of push-bikes alone. The growth in availability and ownership of micro-mobility may also lead to increase in public transport patronage as a result of first mile/last mile micro-mobility use. 

Keywords: bike, e-scooter, first/last mile, micromobility, mode share, mode shift, shared mobility, sustainable transportation
