Last week we shared Part 1 of our Q&A with Michal Nakashimada, Head of New Modes at Ride Report. Here’s Part 2.
Michal Nakashimada, Head of New Modes, is one of the leading voices in the emerging mobility space. In addition to his role ensuring that the Ride Report suite of tools works for many forms of mobility, he writes the Movements newsletter, a roundup of stories about the mobility industry, focusing on mobility software, cities, and infrastructure.
He recently shared his thoughts on the state of the mobility industry in 2021. He had so many valuable insights to share that we’re dividing this Q&A into two parts. Here’s Part 1.
When the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) and its members met in early 2019, they shared a common goal: to manage emerging micromobility programs in a coordinated and consistent manner throughout the region. When it came to shared micromobility data, rather than developing independent resources and tools for each agency, they sought a different solution — a coordinated and shared micromobility data management approach.
DRCOG has been using Ride Report for the last year to share information across jurisdictions and agencies, while better understanding shared micromobility in the region. We spoke with Transportation Technology Strategist, Emily Lindsey, at DRCOG to learn more about how these combined efforts are panning out.
Over several weeks, Ride Report hosted Micromobility Fireside Chats, a webinar series you can enjoy from anywhere, and, most importantly, in the comfort of your own home.
The Ride Report team
Today, Ride Report is excited to announce a raise of $10 million in Series A funding, in a round led by Unusual Ventures.
This partnership allows us to deepen our commitment to helping cities to provide safe, equitable, and environmentally efficient transportation options to their communities.
Ride Report certification is the micromobility industry’s first MDS auditing service. By scoring operators based on their performance against rigorous data benchmarks, our service helps cities with the difficult and error-prone process of knowing which operators are meeting their compliance requirements.
