Title Micro Mobility in Millcreek: A Feasibility Study
Date 2020
Description Micro mobility, a popular transit mode which has increased in popularity and use in recent years, and it has developed rapidly in the last few years. It provides various benefits for cities, such as decreasing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing the transit equity. This article discusses the feasibility of implementing micro mobility in Millcreek, Utah by analyzing other suburbs which have implemented this mode. This report also reviews other research and professional reports to identify the most critical factors for success. Residential population density and employment density appear to be the most significant factors. Additional supportive factors include other forms of public transit and bike lanes, and other concepts which add potential users and improve the riding experience. Knowledge of income levels, ethnicity, and other demographic factors will help administrators improve transit equity in the future. Millcreek is a good candidate for implementing a successful micro mobility project. Civic decision makers should 1) prioritize deployment areas, 2) commit e-scooters as the primary mode of micro mobility, 3) ensure that the system will be affordable to users, and 4) connect micro mobility with local public transit.
