Shared Mobility 2030 Action Agenda Published

Over 50 public, private and nonprofit organisations have released the full text of the Shared Mobility 2030 Action Agenda, which is a first-of-its-kind initiative that aims to promote shared mobility.

The purpose of the agenda is to hold its members accountable to a to-do list of actions that will accelerate the uptake of shared mobility.

The Shared Mobility Action Agenda supports all shared transportation options, including public transportation, ride-hailing, car-sharing, on-demand responsive microtransit, shared bikes and scooters and paratransit

This launch coincides with COP27, the Conference of Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

However, although shared mobility can provide cleaner, more accessible and more equitable transportation options, the United Nations Technology Executive Committee and the Climate Technology Centre and Network report for COP27 said that “the activities and performance of the shared mobility is likely to play a minor role in deep decarbonisation”.

Benjamin de la Peña, CEO of the Shared-Use Mobility Center said:

“We are at a critical tipping point where the transportation needs of our world can be met with a growing shared mobility industry. However, global climate leaders continue to underestimate, underfund and undervalue shared mobility, which has the greatest potential to provide cleaner, more accessible, more equitable transportation options to more people than any other single clean transportation solution. In the face of inaction, we’re mobilising and empowering government agencies, private companies, and nonprofits to hold themselves accountable to advancing people-focused mobility that fights climate change and promotes equity.”

The Action Agenda differs from other recommendations that aim to accelerate the adoption of shared mobility due to its focus on accountability.

Members are asked to set achievable goals in line with the agenda’s rationale, and as a group, the Action Network members will track progress at company, sectoral and global levels.

Action Network Member City of Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland said:

“Everyone should have equal access to a better life, and affordable, safe and accessible transportation options are key to achieving that ideal. People are struggling to keep up with gas price spikes and the rising cost of living. It’s our responsibility to find real solutions. We see investing in shared mobility as a means to create a healthier, more prosperous community. The Shared Mobility 2030 Action Agenda will help us achieve our goals.”

The Shared Mobility 2030 Action Agenda was first announced in May 2022 to promote shared mobility services and support the construction of corresponding infrastructure.

Shared mobility infrastructure includes safe sidewalks, protected bike lanes, complete streets and shared mobility hubs. Shared mobility systems also include the digital and information systems people use to find and access these services.
