About the Bikeshare and Shared Micromobility Industry

Bikeshare and shared micromobility is an affordable, efficient, healthy, and sustainable form of public transportation used mostly for short, point-to-point trips.

Both big and small municipalities across the country adopt bikeshare to provide low-cost transportation, complete transit networks, and resolve the ‘first and last mile’ problem. These systems offer 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.

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. 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.

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.
