Member Spotlight – The City of Mississauga

Mississauga is a large Canadian city neighboring Toronto on Lake Ontario. On the lakefront, Port Credit has shops, a working lighthouse, and a marina with a grounded freighter. Multi-use trails wind through the city’s parks and woodlands. The City of Mississauga is currently studying micromobility in a three-phase project. The City’s Micromobility Project is examining how a shared program of publicly available bikes, e-bikes, or e-scooters could be used for travel in Mississauga.

The city hosted a province-wide e-scooter symposium run by Ontario Traffic Council in March 2020. The Council then approved the vision for the Micromobility Project in December 2020. The next phase of the project includes a review of system best practices and the determination of the best system type for the city.

During this process, the city is thankful for its partnerships with Ontario Traffic Council, the Association for Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals, the municipal staff networks that help discuss proposed regulations and pilot programs. In the future, they hope to engage with public health organizations and local law enforcement.

The City of Mississauga is grateful for its NABSA membership because it provides them the opportunities to contribute, provide input, and share knowledge between organizations in the shared micromobility industry. They value collaborating on policy advocacy with senior levels of government and the depth and breadth of knowledge that they get access to. Finally, they state that our annual conference is a tremendous bonus to their membership!
