Increased Public Ownership and Integration
Public-private partnerships have become increasingly common in North American micro-mobility, with governments subsidizing and overseeing systems. This sort of symbiotic relationship became even more common in 2020 and may signal a major shift in the way shared micro-mobility will be managed in the future. As more cities take an increasingly active role in shared systems, it is possible that micro-mobility companies could eventually become extensions of public transportation. In fact integration of shared micro-mobility and public transportation has already begun in many locations.
