Shared dockless micromobility use, specifically dockless bike sharing and dockless electric scooter (e-scooter) use has grown tremendously in the past decade and today many cities around the world have dockless micromobility systems deployed on their streets.
However, the growth of these systems has caused a variety of issues related to equity and safety. Dockless vehicles may block sidewalks if improperly parked, are often not distributed evenly across cities, and may unintentionally exclude certain travelers by requiring the use of a cell phone for service.
