RELEASE: 84 Million Trips Taken on Shared Bikes and Scooters Across the U.S. in 2018

More than twice as many trips were taken on shared micromobility in the U.S. as compared to the year before.
nacto.org/2019/04/17/84-…
Dockless pedal bikes have largely disappeared from most U.S. cities; in part replaced by shared scooters.
E-bikes, while limited in rollout, have been heavily used in the cities with substantial e-bike fleets.

Kicking off my #aashtoAM tweeting with a few relevant tweets from #WalkBikePlaces below. And really, you should just go look at that whole thread if you work in transportation.
Taking @RelayBikeShare in Atlanta bike infrastructure. Raised path an interesting experience--I like it. Celebratory 100-mile marker a nice touch--recognizes progress. #AASHTOam #infrastructure #BIKES TO #bikeshare

Kicking off #WalkBikePlaces with an infrastructure tour on @BlueBikesNOLA. Several under way now; I'm on the one that looks at public art, placemaking. #bikeNOLA
First stop: Jackson Square, National Historic Site, named for Andrew J. Led battle that saved NOLA in 1812 but owned enslaved people. Should his statue come down? #WalkBikePlaces
Beautiful murals! Families of Plessy and Ferguson reconciled with art in celebration. Studio BE right across the street--big studio space in covered warehouse. @BlueBikesNOLA station right here at park.

The western US has been on fire for weeks, with unbreathable air confining people to their homes and keeping some from getting out on a bike. In other parts of the world it’s straight-up car pollution doing the same. We’re going to CLEAR THE AIR with #bikeschool #bikes4climate.
We’re heading toward Global #ClimateAction Week so you’ll see that hashtag + #bikes4climate tonight along with #bikeschool.
My hot take: Too many discussions under headlines with words like #sustainability or #climate or #green ignore bikes as clean transport.
****Q1: How have forest fires, pollution, other air quality issues affected your bicycling? Fun fact (h/t @andrealearned): Bikes invented as tool due to volcano eruption pollution. See buff.ly/2LEP6vi by @lloydalter. #bikeschool #bikes4climate #ClimateAction #bikehistory

I've started carrying around a bike helmet just in case I need to take a @jumpbikes somewhere (it's often faster than Uber pool/Lyft shared or MUNI during rush hour). Would love one I can just tuck into my backpack. Looked up collapsible bike helmets on Amazon (1/3)
But they're all SUUUUPER expensive (~$140-170). Anyone know why this is? Definitely seems like there'd be more of a market for this with bike/scooter shares. smile.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_no… #Bike #BikeShare (2/3)
Awesome to not have to lug a bike around, but it's not really a feasible last mile option if you don't always have a helmet with you. An easily collapsible/storable helmet would solve this better than a helmet that comes with bikes/scooter (fit issues, might be dirty, etc) 3/3

Pilot in BC Canada: @velometro 3-wheeled enclosed #ebikes operating as shared vehicles. Think Car2Go+bike. Geofenced to keep off pedestrian walkways. #TRBAM
If @velometro classified as bikes they can be in bike lanes but you couldn't park these at a bike rack. Lots of policy issues to be worked through. #TRBAM #bikeshare (?)
Traffic operations questions created by low-power vehicles that aren't quite bikes. If they operate (maybe in general motor vehicle lanes) + you want smaller vehicles used for urban delivery + working for bike mode shift, what happens? #TRBAM #LEVs
