About Bikeshare and Shared Micromobility

Bikeshare and shared micromobility have proven to be an affordable, efficient, healthy, and sustainable form of public transportation used mostly for short, point-to-point, trips.
Municipalities across the country, both big and small, adopt bikeshare to provide low-cost transportation, complete transit networks, resolve the ‘first and last mile’ problem, provide an accessible means for physical activity; reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality, and stimulate economic development.
Similarly, cities across the country have been piloting the use of shared micromobility devices such as scooters to reduce traffic congestion and carbon emissions, and increase transportation and physical activity options.

As of fall 2019, NABSA represents 90 organizations, businesses and cities in 7 countries. About half of NABSA members are for-profit businesses, 24% are non-profits, and 22% are government.

With the rapid expansion of bikeshare and shared micromobility options in the past decade, bikeshare and shared micromobility systems are currently operating in 47 states and the District of Columbia in the US.

Bikeshare and shared micromobility is a fast-growing sector in transportation. The expansion of these transportation options allow consumers to make more sustainable choices and benefit the transportation system as a whole. 84 million trips were taken on bikeshare and shared micromobility devices in 2018 alone.

Bikeshare and Shared Micromobility Industry Metrics

NABSA is embarking on its inaugural Shared Micromobility State of the Industry Report. We are collecting data across a wide variety of topics related to the industry, including ridership metrics, user profiles, industry employment, and equity and community benefits. We’ll analyze trends for all bikeshare and shared e-scooter system types to understand unique characteristics of each. The report will provide a snapshot of the industry in time, allowing us to track trends and mark successes and challenges as our industry evolves.

The report will cover a range of issues of interest to the bikeshare and shared micromobility industry.

We expect to release the report in Spring 2020.

To make this report the best it can be, we want to reach everyone in the industry! Keep an eye on NABSA’s website for surveys, to be posted January 2020, to see what questions we’ll be asking.
