Effectively Managing Connected Mobility Marketplaces is a 23-page white paper recommending the implementation of data-driven investment and data-driven regulatory policies for mobility. Written by two authors at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.
This report 1 addresses the policies and regulations that government agencies can put in place to ensure equity, enforce regulations, make investment decisions, plan zoning and land use, and protect sensitive data. Its scope is broader than shared mobility, encompassing transit and freight movement as well. The report is written at a high level, with broad recommendations on the types of policies that should be put
in place and the role of data in informing and enforcing these policy decisions. Sections of the report include:
- Investments in Physical and Digital Infrastructure
- Regulating and Licensing
- Public Safety
- Zoning and Land Use Planning
- Regulating the Digital Realm (specifically, dealing with private apps routing vehicles onto low volume residential streets)
- Advancing Equitable Access
- Public-Private Mobility Partnerships
