Accelerating Transportation Equity

This report highlights innovative micromobility programs, launched between 2019 and 2021, that are aimed at implementing equitable practices and achieving equitable outcomes in five mid-sized U.S. cities: Denver, Colorado; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Oakland, California; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Saint Paul, Minnesota. The study focuses on the roles of city governments, privately managed dockless bicycles and scooter providers, and CBOs in these programs. Drawing from interviews, this report offers precedent-setting models and actionable steps for cities, large and small, to expand affordability among low-income and Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) travelers and improve infrastructure in their communities.
