Vianova explores key issues for shared micromobility success in the UK

Vianova has published a new report exploring the key issues that need to be considered by city authorities, operators, civic partners and local residents that are introducing shared micromobility services.

The European Policy Guidelines on Shared Micro-Mobility report makes recommendations on civic policies; managing issues of the public environment; managing interactions with other transport modes and the efficient operation of micro-mobility services.

The UK has recently started trialling e-scooters in the UK with Tees Valley one of the first to introduce trials this month.

The report said: “The shared micro-mobility industry is still very new in cities across Europe, and the world. 

“The 2020 Covid19 crisis and the resulting needs for social distancing has reset the transport sector in cities globally.

“Public transport systems, while they remain essential, are having to deal with reduced capacity due to customer spacing as well as concerns about travelling in confined spaces. 

“This is a critical time to provide the insights provided in these guidelines.”
