... 58 C H A P T E R 5 This report summarizes the results of an analysis that was based on the survey of representatives from 44 state DOTs regarding policies and practices that have been implemented to manage different types of micromobility vehicles, including bicycles, e-bikes, and e-scooters. While the research noted that different states took various approaches regarding micromobility, the intent of the analysis was not to compare individual states but rather to document the general state of practice in micromobility regulations at the state level.
From page 59...
... Summary of Findings 59   • While developing micromobility strategies and initiatives, state DOTs collaborate and interact with various stakeholders at all levels, including city and county governments (64.9% of responders) , MPOs and TPOs (64.9% of responders)
From page 60...
... 60 Micromobility Policies, Permits, and Practices outpacing regulations (30% of responders) , ensuring that micromobility modes improve overall transportation system performance without creating additional traffic (25% of responders)
From page 61...
... Summary of Findings 61   More involvement by state DOTs in planning and regulating micromobility can potentially bring more coordination to the rules and policies across different geographic areas within each state and ensure that local communities are fully benefiting from emerging transportation modes. Collecting accurate and consistent data on micromobility operations can be an important component of decision making.
From page 62...
... 62 Micromobility Policies, Permits, and Practices can benefit from further research of the true cost of travel associated with micromobility modes as well as user perception of the cost of travel. Additionally, future research can focus on evaluating trends in micromobility growth in different states over time to identify the effect of climate, terrain, local and state regulations, and other contributing factors.
