The City of Grand Junction has begun evaluating the possibility of permitting the operation of shared micromobility devices within the city limits through a forthcoming pilot study. Shared micromobility services consist of fleets of small, fully or partially human-powered vehicles such as bikes, e-bikes, and e-scooters.
The City would like to assess the community’s interest in shared micromobility and understand public concerns. The City encourages interested community members to attend a virtual listening session to learn more about the pilot study, ask questions, or voice concerns. Attendees can expect a brief overview of the pilot study and platform to share their thoughts and discuss the pilot study with City staff members.

Community members can also send questions, comments, and concerns to the Community Development Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
An ordinance related to regulating micromobility use within the City is tentatively scheduled to be considered on July 20 following a public hearing. If adopted, the City will issue a Request for Proposal (RFP) soliciting interested micromobility companies to submit a proposal for a one-year pilot study which will allow for the deployment of micromobility devices in the city of Grand Junction.
