Mode shift to micromobility

A review into the global use of micromobility in 2019 identified current use and trends in technology and shared models, as well as gaps in information on mode share. Using trip information from strategic transport models, a market potential analysis forecast that the likely range of mode shift to micromobility in New Zealand could be between 3% and 11% of all urban trips by around 2030. Six context factors were developed to help practitioners identify where in this range actual growth is likely to occur. The number of people using shared or separated infrastructure is forecast to increase by three to eight times, which will have a significant impact on project evaluation. The growing use of micromobility in association with public transport/transit could increase patronage in New Zealand by up to 9% by around 2030; consideration of public transport vehicle and network design is required to enable this. The growth of micromobility has both positive and negative impacts on transport outcomes, which were evaluated using the five key outcomes in the New Zealand Ministry of Transport’s Transport Outcomes Framework. Twenty-one key interventions were identified that will help deliver wellbeing and liveability outcomes.
