Welcome to the MLC’s Metro Profiles. Understanding mobility patterns and options is essential to making informed decisions about shared mobility. This tool gives users an overview of the state of shared mobility and transportation trends in the 25 most populous metro areas in the United States. Using the tool, you can understand current mobility patterns, demographic characteristics, and available mobility options across metro areas. You can interact with other resources on the MLC, such as the greenhouse gas emissions calculator, learning modules, case studies, and key policies and pilot projects. The profiles are updated annually; check out our blog post on The State of Shared Mobility in 2022, where you can find all the highlights of shared mobility during our last update.
These data are estimated and based on the best available sources. If you notice anything that we might have missed please email. Full methods available here.
This SUMC tool allows users to get a sense of the potential GHG emissions reductions based on the current bikeshare, e-scooters, and carshare fleet sizes. Try out the Shared Mobility Benefits Calculator to calculate the potential benefits for your city.

Public-Private Partnerships (P3s) are one way to fund and support mobility projects. In some cases, a government entity will own transportation infrastructure and contract with a private company for service or operations. The number of P3s helps to illustrate how cities are working with private mobility operators; however, as the private sector takes a greater role in implementing services through permitting, P3s are not the only indicator of the growth of shared mobility.
The charts below show the P3s that the MLC has tracked since 2016. These values only represent the P3s tracked during this period for the 25 metropolitan areas.
