Analyzing the Impacts of a Successful Diffusion of Shared E-Scooter and Other Micromobility Devices and Efficient Management Strategies for Successful Operations in Illinois

Empirical evidence shows that most car-based trips in the U.S. are short enough so that people can alternatively walk or use micro-mobility options instead. Walking and biking are the two most active micro-mobility options for these short- to medium- distance trips. The researchers seek to understand the benefits of promoting shared E-scooters and other micromobility devices for Illinois and it's residents, propose policies that will most effectively promote these devices, suggest strategies that could be adopted to most efficiently operate one or more of these systems, and understand the significance of these device for promoting public transit to help solve the first-mile, last-mile problem.
