Civil Engineering Professor Mitra to Study Impact of Shared Micromobility Impacts on Smaller Cities

  • Date: 06/11/2021

The SMILIES project (Shared Micromobility for affordable-accessible housing) is a community-engaged pilot project to improve the accessibility to jobs and essential activities for affordable housing communities in small and mid-sized cities and rural areas by leveraging the explosive growth of shared micromobility services. The availability of shared micromobility services such as e-bikes and e-scooters have increased in popularity across the nation in recent years.

The objective of the SMILIES project is to determine the degree of impact that shared micromobility services can have on accessibility to jobs and essential activities, household transportation costs and energy consumption for residents of affordable housing communities in small and mid-size cities and rural areas.
