Tech Talk! Micromobility’s Launch in NJ and Beyond

This Tech Talk Event will explore the current state of micromobility as a shared transport option in the U.S. and highlight recent research on cities that have begun to develop and/or refine policies for their bike-share and e-scooter programs. In NJ, Hoboken and Asbury Park have been on the leading edge by piloting micromobility programs. Speakers will discuss each city’s experiences with bike-share and the introduction of e-scooters, as well as the demographics of usage, user satisfaction, and community receptivity. The panel will explore the nuts and bolts and the challenges of ramping up shared mobility options including: needed infrastructure improvements; marketing and education to attract users and promote safety; law enforcement; and staffing, funding and revenue sharing arrangements with selected providers.
