About this issue
The contributors to this issue investigate how new forms of micromobility – e-bikes, e-scooters and skateboards – impact the city, its land-use and transport systems, the occupation of space, users and non-users, and the environment. They look at the potential benefits of micromobility and some of the pitfalls, and how local and national governments must find the means to mitigate problematic side-effects while facilitating the realization of the benefits.
