Urbanism Next and PPPM Write Article About Equity and Micromobility

Urbanism Next's Amanda Howell and the School of Planning, Public Policy and Management's Assistant Professor Anne Brown recently published their latest article in the "The Journal of Cycling and Micromobility Research" (JCMR). In their article, "Mobility for the people: Equity requirements in US shared micromobility programs", Brown and Howell explore shared micromobility services including bikeshare and shared e-scooters in the United States while also exploring the barriers that continue to limit their use by some travelers.
