Micromobility vehicles and shared micromobility technologies are deploying rapidly in many cities across the United States and internationally. Lacking a standard definition, micromobility can include any small, personal transportation technology that travels slower than 20 to 30 miles per hour, may be motorized, and is frequently operated on pedestrian- or bicycle-oriented infrastructure (often, bicycles, e-bikes, or e-scooters).

The TRB National Cooperative Highway Research Program's NCHRP Synthesis 597: Micromobility Policies, Permits, and Practices documents policies, permits, and practices that state departments of transportation (DOTs) are engaged with in regard to micromobility.
