Micromobility refers to a range of small, low-speed vehicles intended for personal use and commonly includes station-based and dockless bikeshare systems, electric-assist bikeshare modes, and electric scooter (e-scooter) companies. Although, new types of micromobility devices continue to emerge into the market every year. Micromobility vehicles and sharing services have been helping provide first-mile and last-mile (FMLM) connections to transit, especially in areas that are too far reach by walking. This can be notably beneficial for multimodal transit trips because micromobility expands accessibility to bus and rail services.

Micromobility Hubs
A micromobility hub is a determined location, typically at transit stations, where several micromobility and other travel options are provided in one place. UTA is establishing two pilot project micromobility hubs at rail stations – Salt Lake Central and North Temple – to support and incentivize more FMLM trips connecting to transit. These UTA micromobility hubs are focused on improving mobility options for customers accessing or egressing stations without a vehicle.

UTA’s Innovative Mobility Solutions team is currently partnering with GREENbike and e-scooter companies, Lime and Spin, to ensure micromobility devices and services are readily available and have dedicated parking at Salt Lake Central Station and North Temple Station.
