Beyond Equity — A Strategy for Developing Critical Leadership in Transportation

NACTO’s 2019 Shared Mobility Analysis Shows 136 Million Trips Taken

On August 27, the National Association of City Transportation Officials (NACTO) released their long-anticipated 2019 snapshot of the number of trips taken with shared micromobility. They found that from 2010-2016 there were 88 million trips taken on bike share systems across the US. Since then, growth skyrocketed: in 2019 alone, people took 136 million trips. All told, over the past decade, a third of a billion trips were taken on shared bikes and scooters.

2019 ridership is up 60% from 2018, which itself saw twice as many rides as the year before. This year-over-year increase, documented by NACTO throughout the 2010s, suggests shared micromobility systems are continuing to grow in popularity and utility, filling important gaps in transportation networks and playing a vital role in cities.
