Micromobility in Contra Costa – It Takes a Village
Today AMG’s summer intern Natalie Amberg, a graduate student at the University of California, Los Angeles, presented a draft report about micro-mobility: its strengths, weaknesses, threats, and opportunities and how various micro-modes (scooters, e-bikes, e-mopeds, etc.) could work in Contra Costa. She received great feedback and questions from Contra Costa Transportation Authority (CCTA) and AMG executive staff.
Lively discussion ensued throughout the room of transportation professionals who recounted personal experiences on scooters and e-bikes and what it might take to bring mircromobility to the county in a beneficial way. Natalie expressed her thanks to CCTA staff for their mentorship during her 10-week internship.
We thank Natalie for her contribution and look forward to seeing what the future has in store.
A special thank you to Rose, who created the one-of-a-kind cake to celebrate!
