Introduction to Shared Micro-Mobility Systems

The City is currently studying how a shared program of publicly available bicycles, electric bicycles (e-bikes) or electric scooters (e-scooters) could be used for travel in Mississauga.

Micro-mobility devices like bikes, e-bikes and e-scooters are transportation alternatives to vehicles that are lightweight, low-emission and help connect residents to their transit stop or destination. In Mississauga, a shared micro-mobility system could support the city’s greater transportation system, helping residents connect to the Hurontario LRT, the Mississauga Transitway, the active transportation network and key tourism destinations like Port Credit, Streetsville and Downtown Mississauga.

The City is working to define a micro-mobility system that suits Mississauga’s needs and size. This includes examining:

  • the feasibility of the system based on of regional integration
  • operations and governance models
  • financial viability
  • strategic fit
  • other economic benefits and deliverability

Background

In February 2021, the City of Mississauga updated its Parks By-law, Transit By-law and Traffic By-law as part of an interim e-scooter strategy to regulate where personally-owned e-scooters could be operated in Mississauga.

Currently, personally-owned e-scooters can be operated on public roadways with a posted speed limit of 50 km/h or less and on cycling infrastructure, including bike lanes and multi-use trails along roadways.

The purpose of the interim e-scooter strategy was to get feedback from the community on the use of e-scooters in the city, and for staff to use this feedback to help inform whether a shared micro-mobility system should become part of Mississauga’s transportation system in the future. The City’s Transportation Master Plan recommends that a shared system of bikes, e-bikes or e-scooters be created in Mississauga.
