Event Partner: CoMoUK
Organised by: Landor LINKS
Hosted by: Leicester City Council

This masterclass is for local authorities planning or working with shared transport schemes - from bike share to car clubs, demand responsive transport to micro mobility.

Shared transport innovations provide new opportunities for integrating urban and rural mobility options into wider transport plans. Car-sharing, bike-sharing, ride-sharing, Demand Responsive Transit, micro transit and micro mobility can offer first and last mile solutions and provide transport services that are simply not viable using traditional public transport models. Shared mobility services also offer key benefits to towns and cities: cutting congestion, improving air quality, keeping fares low and encouraging active travel.

Technology has made shared modes, combined with public transport, a viable alternative to private car use. Shared modes are now cheaper, easier and more efficient at every stage, including journey planning, sourcing a transport option, booking, paying, sharing journey information and saving receipts.

New shared mobility operators are coming to market all the time.

The primary objective of The Shared Transport Masterclass is to bring together local authority planners and decision-makers with entrepreneurs and operators across the shared transport sector. Sessions will provide a toolkit for transport authorities who are looking to successfully embed shared transport schemes in their transport strategy.

Sessions will focus on:

  • Shared bikes and e-bikes
  • Car-sharing / ride sharing platforms
  • Demand Response Transit
  • Car clubs
  • Micro-mobility

Key issues include:

  • Managing street / kerb space
  • Attitudes and behaviour change
  • Real time data, reporting and standards
  • Regulation and governance
  • Fares and ticketing
  • Integration with other modes / infrastructure
  • User needs
  • Open data platforms
  • Business / revenue models
  • Rural transport options
  • Operational efficiency
  • E-bike charging: battery swop vs on-street, solar charging
  • Shared cargo-bikes
  • Future proofing: MaaS and shared AVs

Benefits of shared mobility:

  • Provide more mobility choices, including active options
  • Offer last mile and first mile solutions
  • Reduce traffic congestion
  • Improve air quality and environmental pollution
  • Reduce transport costs
  • Improve efficiency
  • Provide services to non-car owners
