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.
“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.
“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.
Development on the Atlas will be ongoing, with frequent data set updates to add new modes, operators and cities. Future versions of the Atlas will include autonomous vehicles and drones as well as a policy database in early 2020 that will allow users to compare new mobility regulations by city.
“The Atlas will be a powerful tool to help stakeholders understand how micromobility is expanding and will also help showcase the regions, countries and cities that are falling behind and need to create the conditions for these much-needed modes of transportation” said Adriana Zenteno, MaaS Latam Executive Director.
