Emerging mobility

Transformative innovations will continue to reshape transportation in our region. From advanced technologies like autonomous vehicles, to shared options like electric scooters, innovations promise greater efficiency, reduced environmental impact, and improved urban mobility. Anticipating and planning for these new technologies is crucial for individuals, businesses, and governments alike.

Advanced mobility planning

Mobility Choice Blueprint

The Mobility Choice Blueprint is a collaborative strategy to help the Denver region's transportation sector prepare for and invest in the rapidly changing technology revolutionizing mobility. Funded and developed in partnership with the Colorado Department of Transportation, the Regional Transportation District and the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, the blueprint provides strategic direction for planners to anticipate evolving mobility needs in the region related to walking, biking, driving and transit.

With a horizon of 2030, the blueprint analyzed travel trends and technologies in the region, explored and evaluated various technologies and their implications for mobility and created new planning and implementation partnerships.

Advanced Mobility Partnership

The partners that developed the Mobility Choice Blueprint established the Advanced Mobility Partnership to implement tactics and action items from the plan. The partnership's working group meets monthly to collaborate on transportation technology efforts. Visit the Advanced Mobility Partnership page to learn more.

Shared micromobility

The launch of dockless bike-sharing programs in the region revealed the value of regional collaboration in a coordinated response and approach to shared micromobility. As micromobility fleets quickly expanded to include electric scooters and electric bikes, state and local policymakers began working to ensure regulations enhance safety and foster mobility.

The Micromobility Work Group is one way DRCOG staff support local, regional, state and federal agency conversations and fosters collaboration with partner agencies on shared micromobility. It meets quarterly.

Through a regional Shared Micromobility Data Collaborative, staff from DRCOG and its member governments share micromobility data and analytics. The Ride Report data portal provides an overview of bike-sharing, e-bike and e-scooter use regionwide, as well as in six cities with shared micromobility programs.

At the statewide level, DRCOG staff participates in the Colorado Electric Vehicle Coalition Micromobility Subgroup, which maintains an inventory of shared micromobility programs, updated annually. DRCOG staff use the inventory to maintain an interactive Shared Micromobility in Colorado web map of micromobility programs statewide.
