Regional
Micromobility Coordination


SANDAG launched a Regional Micromobility Coordination effort among municipalities, transit agencies, universities, and military to establish best practices for effective micromobility operations.

Micromobility services like dockless bikeshare, e-scooters, and neighborhood electric vehicles (NEVs) have quickly become popular mobility choices in the San Diego region. While these low speed travel modes offer convenient travel options, the operation of successful micromobility programs can be challenging for local agencies. SANDAG has established a Regional Micromobility Coordination effort to support local jurisdictions as they deploy micromobility programs while building consensus among cities and other stakeholders in the areas of data sharing, micromobility parking and passenger loading, education/outreach, and equity.

Regional Micromobility Data Sharing Requirements

SANDAG collaborated with local cities to develop a set of Regional Micromobility Data Sharing Requirements. Micromobility operator compliance with these requirements will help ensure local cities, transit agencies, universities, and military bases receive the raw data and corresponding analyses needed to inform both capital improvements and micromobility policy decisions
