The National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) has released an update to Guidelines for Regulating Shared Micromobility, guidance to help local governments and transit agencies manage shared micromobility fleets. The guidelines cover a range of issues from safety to operational requirements.
The Guidelines for Regulating Shared Micromobility includes general terms and conditions (provisions, insurance, fees, enforcing permits), scope and operations insight, public engagement strategies, mobility data, infrastructure (parking, restricted/limited access areas), and the current state of practices.
An additional resource that must be considered alongside the guidelines is the Shared Micromobility in the US report. Released in April 2019, the report is NACTO’s annual comprehensive count of all shared micromobility trips in the United States. Read Long Island Streets recaps of the report here, or view the full full report here.
We encourage Nassau County officials and departments working on the Nassau County Shared Mobility Management Plan to dig in to these resource from NACTO.
In addition, We encourage decision makers involved to attend the 5th Annual Vision Zero Cities Conference, October 10-11th, which will have highly relevant breakout sessions, addressing all issues and best practices on #safestreets and #micromobility from leading industry and policy experts, advocates, and elected officials in the field circling the globe.
This year's conference themes include:
Safe and Sustainable: Urban transportation policy for a changing climate
Vision Zero Everywhere: Breaking down barriers and adapting successes for cities big and small
Unbiased and Unflinching: The case for automated enforcement
Whose Streets? Intersectional Vision Zero for equitable outcomes
