Moving forward, what role should dockless mobility play in Austin?

Amit Motwani

City Council, District 3

I’m not sure; dockless is still relatively new for Austin, and I’d like to watch the innovationmodel play out for a bit longer. I’ve been fascinated watching dockless mobility evolve and am encouraged by the potential of dockless to fill nuanced (or perhaps even exaggerated) gaps in transportation need At this point, I’m very interested in its iterative development and rapid user uptake. However what’s clear is that the parameters within dockless mobility must reside include:

  • 100% ADA compliance re: assurance of right of way
  • Sustainability (i.e. non-disposability) as a guiding principle
  • Compliance re: regulations (existing or future) related to build quality, safety, and functionality
