Mobility Services

Goals

  • Collect stakeholder input on the Colorado State Senate Bill 19-239, Emerging Mobility Impacts Study and develop recommendations for upcoming legislative sessions
  • Identify and launch efforts to support highly-effective transportation demand management (TDM) strategies to address congestion, including enhancing transit ridership through seamless payment integration
  • Explore ways to better serve rural populations, veterans, older Americans, ADA populations, and other underserved populations
  • Study possible tools to create a universal payment or navigation app for transit and other emerging mobility providers
  • Develop guidelines to help communities implement micromobility strategies
  • Coordinate mobility strategies for application in mobility hubs

Transportation Demand Management (TDM)

TDM includes walking, bicycling, parking management, targeted transit, microtransit, micromobility, carpooling, vanpooling, teleworking, flexplace, flextime, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), Guaranteed Ride Home programs, and TDM-friendly site design considerations.

Commuting Options

Colorado State Senate Bill 19-239

Requires CDOT to convene and consult with a stakeholder group to examine impacts of emerging transportation technologies and business models, identify means of addressing impacts, and report findings and make recommendations to the general assembly.

Internet Carpool Application Registration

Under Colorado House Bill 21-1076, carpool companies are required to register with the Colorado Department of Transportation beginning on October 1, 2021. This legislation separates carpool service companies from Transportation Network Companies (e.g. ride-hailing companies such as Uber and Lyft).  For additional information, see the 'Questions and Answers about HB-21-1076' document below or email questions to: [email protected]state.co.us

HB 21-1076 Questions & Answers

Shared Micromobility

Definition: Shared micromobility is an emerging technology in which common bicycles, electric bicycles (E-bikes), and scooters are provided within the public right of way. These devices are operated and maintained by a private vendor, non-profit, or  public agency. Smart-phone applications (apps) are used to locate, reserve, check out, and process payment for the use of these devices. Shared micromobility mobility devices may be docked, meaning the locations for pick-up and drop-off of the devices are in set locations, or dockless, in which case the devices are located in a public space, such as a sidewalk. Regulation of where these devices may operate typically occurs at the local level of government. For example, a community may limit the operational speed of these devices within a defined area, such as a pedestrian mall.

Benefits to the state of Colorado: Shared micromobility provides low cost, on-demand mobility as a service option for residents and visitors of Colorado. Shared micromobility devices like scooters and E-bikes are often an ideal mobility solution for first-and last-mile trips for people riding public transit. Shared micromobility reduces personal vehicle parking needs within urban communities, which reduces congestion from vehicles searching for limited parking. Secondly, shared micromobility trips often replace trips in personal vehicles. Benefits from fewer vehicle miles traveled (VMT) include reduced congestion on the transportation network and fewer greenhouse gas emissions.
