CRCOG Regional Micromobility “Meet Up” – presentation to communities on moving forward with a regional micromobility system, held November 15, 2022

Study Results

CRCOG recently completed our Regional Micromobility Feasibility Study, an update of the 2014 “Metro Hartford Bike Share Study” to reassess the potential for a regional micromobility system. Working with our consultant, Foursquare ITP, this process assessed ridership demand and propensity and helps CRCOG and its communities understand what a regional micromobility system could look like. It answers questions about which communities is a system most feasible, how large of a system is sustainable, and discusses vehicle type and business model options – and identifies to potential for a Mobility Collective.

We completed a Recent Trends in Bike Share Memorandum that summarizes the state of the bike share/micromobility industry today, highlighting key trends that may impact the CRCOG region as it continues to pursue the implementation of a regional micromobility program.  

We formed a small working group comprised of several communities and stakeholders to help guide the process and provided additional perspective. This group is currently helping to identify the vision and goals for a regional micromobility system. Presentations made to this group are also available below:

Workshop #1           Workshop #2

Additionally, we have created a Myths and Facts sheet to help answer common questions communities might have about bike and scooter share systems.

Curious about the original 2014 report? CRCOG worked with the Greater Hartford Transit District and a consortium of other agencies to investigate the feasibility of implementing bike share within and beyond the region. Check out the full report here and how it laid out a phased plan for implementation.
