Shared micro-mobility means any small, human, or electric-powered transportation solution is shared among multiple users. Examples are bikes, e-bikes, scooters, e-scooters, or small lightweight vehicles.
“Shared micromobility is going places: one electric bike or scooter at a time!”
As per McKinsey’s report, Munich is considered to have a significant impact by 2030 due to micromobility.
- 80,000 tons of CO2 emissions can be reduced.
- 4 hours can be saved by each passenger per year, which is equivalent to half an average working day per passenger.
- 130 hectares of green grass areas can be added which is equivalent to 180 football fields.
- 1/3 of shared micromobility trips will be based on public-transit ridership in 2030.
- Heavy traffic congestion can be unwound by Micromobility leading to a strong public=private partnership with a conducive regulatory environment.
Well, in the case of Europe, shared micromobility remains highly restrictive in London whereas in Portland, and Oregon, the situation is not the same. Also, micromobility is playing crucial in last-mile delivery services.
Well, need to be seen if the shared services can be successfully implemented with the regular transport systems.
