The role of micro-mobility in shaping sustainable cities: A systematic literature review

This study used a systematic literature review to evaluate and analyse relevant literature on micro-mobility with a focus on research that looked into its potential as a form of sustainable urban transport. While the topic has attracted research interest for a long time, the results from this work showed a strong trend of increased research output on micro-mobility since 2010 culminating in around 44 publications in 2019 and 55 journal publications to date in 2020.

Shared Mobility Principles for Liveable Cities

The pace of technology-driven innovation from the private sector in shared transportation services, vehicles, and networks is rapid, accelerating, and filled with opportunity. At the same time, city streets are a finite and scarce resource. These principles, produced by a working group of international NGOs, are designed to guide urban decision-makers and stakeholders toward the best outcomes for all. The Shared Mobility Principles for Livable Cities were developed in 2017 by Robin Chase, Zipcar co-Founder, and a consortium of leading city and transport organizations. Published 2017

Future Ready Kerbside

Uber and WSP partnered to release a new white paper – Future Ready Kerbside – which examines what we need to do today to ensure our kerbsides and streetscapes enable the places people want now and into the future. Using two case studies to bring the recommendations to life, the white paper examines how the kerbside is allocated and managed during the day and evening and the impacts that has on people and place. It then envisions how these kerbsides could be better used to achieve what we want for these places by supporting future transport technology, higher levels of public amenity, and greater access for people and goods to support local businesses.
