The Shared Mobility Data: A Resource Guide includes the following information:

  • Summary of relevant literature and online documents.
  • Sample documents and agreements relating to the provision, management, and sharing of shared mobility data.
  • Relevant data standards and open-source software related to these standards.
  • Organizations that are active in these topic areas.
  • Examples of public datasets and dashboards provided by public agencies across the country.

The primary intended audience for this document includes both management and staff of public agencies responsible for shared mobility, including both those that use data for regulating shared mobility operations and those who use this type of data for broader planning purposes, such as implementing bike lanes or integrating shared mobility with transit operations.

While the guide summarizes over 40 references for data management, it is not a comprehensive encyclopedia; rather, it provides an overview on the data management needs related to each topic. The guide contains modules so that the reader can easily locate the specific sections relevant to their topics of interest. The bulk of the resources address micromobility; however, many of these resources have information or recommendations that are equally applicable to other shared mobility services, such as TNCs, ride-hailing, and micro-transit. Topic areas covered include:

  • Applications
    • Operations
    • Planning & analysis
    • Enforcement
  • Cross-Cutting
    • Data sharing policies & practices
    • Use of third parties for data management
    • Curb management
    • Communicating with the public

Each reference is also tagged with the type of resource it represents. Resource types include: 

  • Literature or online resource
  • Sample document or agreement
  • Standards effort or software tool
  • Organization
  • Dataset

The guide begins by providing a brief discussion of each topic area. Next, the primary section of the guide contains a reference sheet for each resource. The reference sheet identifies the title and author, the type of resource, where to obtain it, the topic areas covered, a summary of the content, as well as a more detailed description. In some cases, links to additional, closely related resources are also provided.
