Forum Context

As the arena of micromobility evolves, CPM is excited to establish a forum focused on how this transportation trend relates to planning in urban and suburban areas. From e-bikes to rocketskates to Medicare-funded mobility scooters, an expanding range of personal transportation choices has begun to impact every aspect of planners' work.

Many of these up-and-coming mobility options are so new and different from previously understood transportation devices that there are, quite literally, no rules about how they should be used, and little guidance about where they fit best in our transportation infrastructure. Some seem familiar on the surface yet are operationally revolutionary, while others are covered under umbrella laws such as the Americans with Disabilities Act and are not easily subject to local regulations, while still being impactful in terms of planning needs. From operational laws to building access and safe storage to charging stations, these new devices require new, informed and intentional thinking about their role in the larger transportation fabric. CPM is eager to be a leader in this planning discussion.

Additional forum activities may include site visits to review infrastructure and storage issues or experiential use of various devices. If you have further questions about the forum, contact Craig Kelly, a CPM member and leader of this new subcommittee forum, at General questions about CPM can be directed to CPM President Leonardi Aray, at
