White paper on dockless mobility services

This study has been conducted as part of 6t’s pluriannual research program CO3MD. Since early 2018, dockless mobility services have rapidly spread on the streets of French cities. While private operators underline the alleged low environmental impact of their service and the lack of operation cost for local authorities, public concerns have been raised all throughout the world regarding where their impact on public space, the congestion and clutter they might create, as well as the safety of both end-users and passers-bys.

Regulation is at stake : how can local authorities optimise the benefits of these services, while limiting the negative externalities they may create ? This study aims at establishing a “White Book” on dockless mobility regulation, may it be dockless scooters, bicycles, motorcycles or cars. Results have been drawn from a rigorous literature review, an international benchmark, and interviews with 20 French local authority representatives and 6 mobility service operators.
