Brief: Micromobility and Public Transit Environmental Design Integration

. Institute of Transportation Studies, University of California, Davis, Brief UCD-ITS-RR-24-16

Micromobility—transportation using lightweight vehicles such as bicycles or scooters—has the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, traffic congestion, and air pollution, particularly when it is used to replace private vehicle use and for first- and last-mile travel in conjunction with public transit. The design of the built environment in and around public transit stations plays a key role in the integration of public transit and micromobility. The San Francisco Bay Area is a potential testbed for innovative and adaptive transit station design features that support micromobility, since it has relatively high public transit and shared micromobility usage, as well as high micromobility usage rates for trips to and from transit. The region’s Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) heavy rail stations are in the operation zone of seven shared micromobility operators.
