Shared mobility refers to transportation services and resources that are shared among users, either concurrently or one after another. Here, we are specifically referring to the emerging trend of different types of vehicles being available for rent, share, hire, or other use – especially enabled by technology such as smartphone applications.
At Research Park, shared mobility services can help you get around or to adjacent areas. Shared mobility can also provide a ride home in a pinch when a private vehicle is not available.
Shared mobility resources at Research Park include:
- Electric scooters and bikes: Lime and Bird have come to Research Park! Each company deploys its e-scooters at the Heart of the Park community hub – find them there or throughout the Park. Sign up for the apps for Lime and Bird.
