Shared micromobility is the use of non-motorized or electrically powered micro-vehicles that are made available for short-term use in the city for a fee. Particularly in the much-cited last mile - for example, from the subway to home - shared micromobility offers great opportunities for inexpensive and CO2-neutral transportation options. Most recently, shared micromobility has proliferated in the form of rental scooters and rental bikes. It's convenient, easy to use via app, and works independently of transportation companies. A driver's license is also unnecessary.
However, this creates new challenges for cities: other road users have to share their already limited space with the new vehicles. In addition, e-scooters or rental bikes often get in the way. Users often carelessly park them because the parking is unregulated and no parking space is defined for these vehicles.
In order to create globally sustainable structures, the member states of the United Nations have set themselves 17 goals by 2030, which are set out in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
