How the flows of people and vehicles are managed dictates quality of life and access to opportunity for billions of people. And these flows are changing.

The 10 Shared Mobility Principles for Livable Cities, produced by a consortium of international transport experts from seven organizations, are designed to guide urban decision-makers and stakeholders toward the best outcomes for all in ongoing changes to transport technology, operational systems, and ownership and business models.

The consortium, led by Zipcar Co-Founder Robin Chase, includes the C40 Climate Leadership Group, ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, Institute for Transportation and Development Policy, Partnership on Sustainable Low Carbon Transport, Rocky Mountain Institute, and Shared-Use Mobility Center, along with WRI Ross Center for Sustainable Cities.

The Principles:

  1. We plan our cities and their mobility together.
  2. We prioritize people over vehicles.
  3. We support the shared and efficient use of vehicles, lanes, curbs and land.
  4. We engage with stakeholders.
  5. We promote equity.
  6. We lead the transition towards a zero-emission future and renewable energy.
  7. We support fair user fees across all modes.
  8. We aim for public benefits via open data.
  9. We work towards integration and seamless connectivity.
  10. We support that autonomous vehicles in dense urban areas should be operated only in shared fleets.
