Balanced Shared Mobility Policy

We will support your city in developing policies that strike the balance between community benefit and operational feasibility.

What does movmi offer?

Want shared mobility to thrive in your city?

Shared mobility options are still relatively new and cause many questions and concerns from regulators. The impact they have on cities can be positive – increasing sustainable and affordable modes for all – or negative with cluttered sidewalks, services that are only for the wealthy few or financially struggling operators that leave the market overnight.

Our approach always starts with understanding people’s needs and challenges for shared mobility services. We then engage with local service providers through structure interviews to gain neutral insights into the operational realities. Lastly we collate international best practices of similarly sized cities and policy examples to inform the shared mobility policy recommendations for our clients. This approach benefits the local community and sets shared mobility up for long-term success.
