Micromobility

Micromobility

This is a decision-support tool for planning, designing, operating, and managing micromobility in the U.S. cities. This tool is a website that includes the datasets, programs, analysis results, visualizations, preprints, reports, and other relevant materials to help stakeholders to gain useful information for decision making and to guide policy intervention.

For any questions regarding this tool, please contact Yiming Xu (yiming.xu@ufl.edu) and/or Xilei Zhao (xilei.zhao@essie.ufl.edu).
