This document lays out the data reporting requirements that must be followed by shared micromobility operators in Minneapolis’ 2021 pilot program. It lays out the requirements for operators to provide APIs for MDS and GBFS data feeds and for the operator to conduct two customer surveys using questions provided by the city.
The city reserves the right to require that the operator provide an API that may be shared with a third party to facilitate the city’s Mobility as a Service (MaaS) program.
The agreement 1 lays out specific data that must be provided. In addition to the APIs and surveys, operators must also provide either a dashboard or a report that includes the following summary data: “number of Fleet Scooters distributed; total number of trips; trips per Fleet Scooter per day; number of new customers; total number of customers; total number of low-income program customers; average miles per trip; and average minutes per trip.”
Falsified data or deliberately inaccurate reporting may be grounds for termination of the operator’s license.
The city may share any public data collected with other government entities for common public purpose objectives but will not share or disclose non-public data as defined under Minnesota law.
The city agrees to abide by its “Mobility Data Methodology” and to inform operators of any substantive changes in advance of their implementation.
