A Brief Introduction To Micromobility: E-Learning Course

We are delighted to announce the launch of a new online learning course we created in collaboration with the European Institute of Innovation and Technology‘s Urban Mobility Academy: ‘A Brief Introduction to Micromobility.’

While micromobility is quickly becoming one of the most desirable modes for people to move around in cities throughout the world, often these services (specifically e-scooter sharing services) are seen as a thorn in the side of city planners. Despite widespread popularity, we have seen the removal of numerous micromobility companies from our streets and even now, the city of Paris is mulling over a decision to ban e-scooters entirely. 

It is this tricky, and ever changing landscape, that micromobility providers and operators need to navigate correctly, if they wish to create a successful service in 2023. We address these issues and more in our new, completely free, e-learning course. Keep reading for an overview of the course. 👇
