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

Kathie Tovo

City Council, District 9

Dockless mobility holds a lot of promise as a “first-mile/last-mile solution” that helps people get to and from public transit stops more easily. I have been and will continue to keep providing feedback directly to the companies and to staff so that we can achieve the right balance: I want to see these mobility solutions flourish in an environment that also provides reasonable rules on things like blocking sidewalks or the right-of-way, to ensure that Austin institutes dockless mobility in a way that realizes the potential of this technology while meeting the needs of residents of all abilities.
