Step 3: What to Regulate

Because cities across the United States vary dramatically, it comes as no surprise that each city faces unique challenges with respect to dockless mobility. Regardless of the facilitative, restrictive, or middle approach a city takes, there are key regulatory topics that cities should address when adopting regulations relating to dockless mobility.  These include:

  1. Service Area
  2. Permit Cost Structure
  3. Company/Unit Caps
  4. Title/Registration
  5. Maintenance
  6. Data Sharing
  7. Data Privacy
