15: City Dashboards for Micromobility - Regina Clewlow from Populus

December 13, 2018 at 3:00AM • 40 minutes • Wiki Entry

On today's episode, Oliver talks with Regina Clewlow (@reginaclewlow), CEO & Co-Founder of Populus.ai about her insights gained from building micromobility data dashboards for city officials. We discuss what matters to cities, and why the rise of micromobility data will drive the changes in streetscapes across the world.

We also discuss:
- The new data standards emerging for operators in cities, and how this will help both operators and cities better manage fleets, and cities to develop more appropriate infrastructure.
- The new partnership they've developed with Lime to monitor their LimePod car sharing in Seattle, and how that lays the foundation for fixing the tragedy of the commons problems with scooter parking.
- The report that Populus has produced for DC looking at equity of access to dockless mobility services vs more traditional docked services and why this matters to cities.
