The City of Boulder's Transportation Master Plan sets out a roadmap for a future that is shared and electric to meet our transportation and climate goals.
Micromobility can help us get there. It refers to ways of getting around that use shared services and connected technology to provide more travel choices to more people, such as shared e-bikes and e-scooters. These smaller-scale travel choices can help reduce single-occupant car trips and fill in gaps in our transportation network.
In October 2020, City Council supported city staff's recommendation to issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) to select operator(s) to provide e-scooters and e-bikes for a new Shared Micromobility Program in the city. City staff issued the RFP in March 2021 with the goal of initiating a new program in summer 2021.
