The Oakland Department of Transportation (OakDOT) is studying how to improve the accessibility of shared mobility services for persons with disabilities. Shared mobility refers to the short-term use of a shared vehicle, typically via smartphone application. The four types of shared mobility services in Oakland are:

Bike sharing: Bay Wheels (formerly Ford GoBike) provides 800 shared bikes and electric bikes at 80 stations around the City.

Scooter sharing: Lime, Bird and Lyft each provide up to 1,000 electric scooters.

Car sharing: GIG Car Share offers about 450 cars for one-way trips. ZipCar and Getaround offer dozens of cars for round-trips.

Ride hailing: Uber and Lyft offer on-demand car trips provided by a driver.

Your feedback will help OakDOT determine how to improve accessibility of shared mobility services. One example of this is the Adaptive Bike Share Pilot Program, now offering short-term rental of adaptive cycles at Lake Merritt. The program is intended for people with disabilities and those who are not comfortable using traditional, two-wheeled Bay Wheels (formerly Ford GoBikes). The adaptive cycles available include: hand cycles, three-wheeled trikes and side-by-side tandems.
