The North American Bikeshare and Scootershare Association’s (NABSA) 2021 State of the Industry Report has arrived. Now in its third year, this year’s report continues tracking ridership levels, demographic data, and other trends through the COVID-19 pandemic. Once again, NABSA worked with Toole Design and the University of California Berkeley Transportation Sustainability Research Center (TSRC) to help develop the report, using a mix of survey results, statistics gathered from performance reports released by shared micromobility systems, and data from the General Bikeshare Feed Specification (GBFS), the open data standard for bike share.
This State of the Industry Report speaks to the general resilience of shared micromobility in the face of global upheaval. Plus, it continues to follow the expansion and popularity of electric shared micromobility. New this year is a policy section and an expanded section on the growing trend of transit integration within shared micromobility. Additional reported metrics include country-by-country breakdowns of ridership trends and vehicle types, mode shift, rider representation, economic impacts, and much more.
