Dockless Shared Mobility

City of Emeryville has adopted an ordinance to establish regulations and new permits to operate dockless shared mobility systems in the public right of way. 

Better Choices and Better Mobility 

Reducing vehicle trips and expanding more active transportation options benefits all of us in reduced air pollution, more equitable access to transit, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and improvements in local business activity. Emeryville's residents and visitors deserve safe and comfortable transportation choices. For all these reasons, Emeryville is working to encourage safe and equitable micro-transportation systems. The City will continue to work to ensure safety, comfort and, equity for everyone using these forms of transportation.

In order to manage a large number of dockless devices on streets and sidewalks, the new policy requires Dockless Mobility Providers to share information with the City (under the Mobility Data Specification, or MDS). The City is subscribing to the same set of rules and regulations that have been developed by the City of Los Angeles. L.A. developed the Mobility Data Specification to create standard communications between cities and private companies to improve their operations, allowing cities to collect data that can, in turn, inform real-time traffic management and public policy decisions to enhance safety and equity. The MDS helps the City adhere to a consistent standard with many other cities locally and nationally.

Dockless Shared Mobility Operators 

Information regarding the permitted and approved operators in Emeryville will be available soon.
