2019 NADTC Transportation Trends Report

February 5, 2020
Source: National Aging and Disability Transportation Center (NADTC)

Each year, the National Aging and Disability Transportation Center (NADTC) publishes a Trends Report to review current topics of significance in transportation. It includes information briefs on the following topics: Filling a Need: Hiring People with Disabilities in Transit; Travel Training for Older Adults; Procuring Demand Response Transit Technology; Scooter Policies and Accessibility within Shared Pedestrian Space; Mental Health and Transportation; and Workforce Development in Transportation Occupations. Each brief includes overviews of the subject matter, examples of how the transportation trend is affecting communities in the U.S., and resources for you to use in pursuing more information on the topic. As in previous years, the Trends Report is divided into stand-alone ’Topic Spotlights’ for individual download.

The current Topic Spotlight featured is "Scooter Policies and Accessibility within Shared Pedestrian Space." Recently, cities across the U.S. have experienced an increased presence of shared on-demand bicycles, electric bikes, and e-scooters. These mobility devices are all a part of the new shared "microbility options" that are becoming more commonplace and allow users to make short distance trips at a relatively low cost.

While the convenience, efficiency and flexibility of these new modes of transit make them desirable to many, they have also caused problems in terms of storage when dockless devices are left scattered across sidewalks and public right-of-ways. This information brief discusses the challenges and opportunities the new scooters present.
