INRIX: Shared Bikes and Scooters Could Replace Nearly 50% of Downtown Vehicle Trips

Monday, September 9, 2019 - 5:01am

To demonstrate a city's potential benefit for shared micromobility, INRIX analyzed and constructed heat maps to score and visualize results for New York City.

Key Points: 
  • To demonstrate a city's potential benefit for shared micromobility, INRIX analyzed and constructed heat maps to score and visualize results for New York City.
  • While Manhattan has the highest transit coverage of any major American city, the Upper East Side is less accessible than the Upper West Side, which corresponds to greater proportion of short-distance trips.
  • With congestion tolling and the expansion of protected bike lanes in New York City, shared micromobility services could safely provide critical first- and last-mile connections to neighborhoods throughout the city.
  • Micromobility faces a promising future by replacing short distance vehicle trips and providing currently underserved first- and last-mile solutions for public transit riders.
