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

Jessica Cohen

City Council, District 3

In District 3, you only need to drive to the corner to see dockless mobility in use. It’s clear it’s had a major impact on our city and I believe we should expand the areas where it’s available. However, I think that some further regulation needs to be implemented for the safety of drivers, riders, and pedestrians. Things like dedicated protected lanes separated from driving lanes to reduce risk of accidents between motor vehicles and riders. I’d also like to see more public bike racks paid for by the companies as part of their permitting process.
