NUMO, the New Urban Mobility alliance, has launched an extensive global platform mapping the widespread growth of new mobility in cities.
The NUMO New Mobility Atlas visualizes the rapid proliferation of new mobility, including micromobility, around the world. Developed in partnership with Populus, Grin and MaaS Latam, the Atlas uses open data to track which shared transportation options — currently dockless scooters, bicycles and mopeds — are available in cities.
A New Transportation Revolution
“We are witnessing a new transportation revolution, and shared mobility is a significant catalyst,” said NUMO director Harriet Tregoning. “The Atlas is a collaborative platform for a global network of policymakers, transportation companies, journalists and academics to gain a better understanding of how tech-enabled mobility disruptions are impacting cities and people.”
The Atlas covers 626 unique cities in 53 countries and aims to provide users with knowledge that will empower them to advocate for sustainable, equitable mobility options that are accessible to everyone.
Valuable Insights into Mobility in Cities
“By visualizing the deployment of new mobility through the city perspective, we gain access to incredibly valuable insights, such as how e-scooters are gaining traction in some regions, while electric mopeds are finding more favorable conditions or markets in others,” said NUMO research lead Sebastian Castellanos.
