NUMO Alliance launches micromobility data tool for cities

The New Urban Mobility Alliance (NUMO) has launched Micromobility & Your City: Leveraging Data to Achieve Policy Outcomes, a mobility data tool for cities to evaluate micromobility services against policy goals that foster safe, sustainable and equitable communities for all.

Micromobility services have grown over the last two years and they are known to be available in over 630 cities in at least 55 countries. What remains to be seen, according to NUMO, is how these services are reshaping communities, which often experience the disruptions of new modes and technology without the benefits.

NUMO argued that data generated by micromobility services can help cities better understand how their communities, public spaces and existing transportation landscapes are being impacted by new technologies and services and where there are gaps in needed service.
