Cities are getting more serious about micromobility data

Passport, a mobility management startup, has partnered with Charlotte, N.C., Detroit, MIch., and Omaha, Neb. to create a framework to apply parking principles, data analysis and more to the plethora of shared micromobility services. "For many cities, the only option has been to impose bans, fees or permit systems intended to cap the number of scooters allowed on their streets," Passport CEO Bob Youakim told TechCrunch via email. With Passport, those cities will be able to easily analyze scooter usage, parking patterns and curb utilization.
