Baton Rouge; Louisiana; United States

Background (Show)

Lesson Learned

Based on their experience DDOT found:
  • The program showed promise, but there is not strong evidence different users are dockless vehicles compared to DC’s existing docked bike share systems
  • Widespread parking violations were not common, but the ones that did occur were problematic. DDOT should institute programmatic changes to ensure better parking behavior by users and better management by operators.
  • Dockless mobility is rapidly evolving. DDOT should continue to regularly survey residents and users alike to inform regulation of dockless vehicles.
  • DDOT should identify staffing needs for continued operation of a dockless micromobility program.
