The cities of Charlotte NC, Detroit MI, and Omaha NE have partnered with mobility management company, Passport, and mobility service provider, Lime, for a new micromobility pilot program. The program aims to help cities have more control over micromobility deployments, such as electric scooters. Through Passport, the cities will be able to monitor and incentivize particular behaviors (for instance, with respect to where scooters are parked), analyze scooter distribution and usage patters, power dynamic pricing, and manage area-specific objectives. According to Lime this pilot aims to “establish a mutually-beneficial, tailored [micromobility] system that introduces the right number of scooters at the right locations to best serve residents and visitors.”
