ALTA INNOVATION SERIES WEBINAR: Sept 20th – The Rise of Micro-mobility: Responding to Dockless and Shared Mobility

The newest trends in mobility are small, cheap, nimble, and shared.  What does the rise of micro-mobility mean for your community? Dockless bike share and scooter share have proven the broad appeal of point-to-point shared mobility and are influencing people’s travel choices. On Thursday, September 20th, join Alta Planning + Design as we host a discussion on the promise and the pitfalls of micro-mobility.  You will hear from two cities tackling the opportunity head-on: Aurora, Colorado which was one of the first dockless bike share permitting programs in the country and St. Louis, MO which enacted a permitting policy that includes a social equity component. This free, public webinar will be informative for communities developing solutions to leverage the benefits of new mobility and mitigate the challenges.

Date: Thursday, September 20
Time: 9am-10am PDT (12pm-1pm EDT)
