Micromobility 8: The Total Addressable Market for Micromobility

Micromobility has an addressable market of more than $1.4 trillion dollars annually just in the US, a figure that makes it more valuable than longer distance transport addressable by cars. That's the message in this episode where we run through the talk 'When Micromobility Attacks' that Horace gave at the recent Micromobility Summit in Copenhagen. We look at: - how US trip data typically exhibits log-normal disibutions (and an explanation of what this means!) - how many of the 2 trillion vehicle trips taken in the US annually would potentially be served by micromobility (min 20) - how Marchetti's constant (one hour of travel a day) relates to micromobility's benefits (min 23) - how adoption of micromobility would impact car demand, and why this is relevant to automakers (min 26) - why these high volume, short trips are actually more valuable than average car trips on a dollar basis. (min 30) - how time spent travelling will actually drive adoption of micromobility in highly congested cities. (min 34) - Why 3 times more time is spent on short trips than longer trips in vehicles, and the implications for micromobility (min 36) - The impacts this explosion in micromobility might have on carbon emissions and how we can measure that (min 42) Be sure to check out the slides here (https://www.slideshare.net/asymco/when-micromobility-attacks) and the transcript on our Medium page.

Micromobility 7: The Dutch cycling experience and je ne sais quoi

In this episode, we look at the history of the Dutch cycle infrastructure, the symbiotic tension that we'll see between micromobility and autonomous vehicles, and the intangible quality of cities with vibrant micromobility ecosystems. We also cover: - the recent spate of news re: the dawning scooter wars (Bird, Lime, Jump) - San Francisco's highway history - the cost comparisons for cycling infrastructure vs. car infrastructure, especially when compared to modal share vs. landuse in European cities. - How the rollout of cycling infrastructure parallels (or doesn't) the rollout of cellular infrastructure in both the US and Europe. - the creative tension that will exist between micromobility vehicles vs. autonomous cars (walkable neighborhoods vs. exurbia sprawl) - the 'experience' factor of micromobility, and the unquantifiable value of the thrill of riding a scooter/e-bike vs. passive A-B transport and how this is influenced by the European vs. American views of the world. The transcript for this episode will be up on our Medium page very soon! Also worth checking out the Micromobility Summit that Horace will be hosting on January 31st in the Bay Area. Check out Micromobility.io for early bird tickets. More on that next week. Cheers!
