Most modern cities in developed countries have extensive public transport networks that are designed to make it easy for people to get around even if they don’t have their vehicles. However, one problem that even the most advanced public transport systems have been unable to solve is how to make the first and last mile of each journey more convenient. It's not possible, for example, to simply add more and more stations to train networks because this would make them a much slower option for getting around. One solution that is attracting a lot of interest right now is micromobility.
Micromobility solutions are intended to address short distance travel difficulties in large cities. Bicycle sharing schemes, such as those offered in Sydney, London, Washington, D.C. and many other cities around the world, are just one example of solutions that have been introduced in recent years.
These schemes are more accurately referred to as shared micromobility as the bikes are available for anybody to use. After you have reached your destination, you simply leave the bicycle you used at the nearest collection point, where it can be picked up by another commuter.
Whether a scheme is free or it involves a service fee, the aim of all micromobility solutions is the same — to provide people with a convenient and inexpensive way to complete the first or last stage of their journey in a city.
A well planned micromobility service offers many key benefits that both visitors and inhabitants of urban areas can enjoy:
These benefits are helping to provide traction for micromobility trends in many countries around the world. Companies that are looking for new ways to increase the revenue they generate from their vehicle fleets should consider offering micromobility services to attract new customers.
From a global perspective, industry analysts expect micromobility solutions to recover strongly as travel options begin to open up again in the aftermath of the COVID-19 global pandemic. With this in mind, companies that are in a position to take advantage of the growth in demand may be able to increase their revenue by offering these services to their customers.
