The Mobile City Title is an award for to the leaders of the ranking of cities friendly to shared mobility. In the classification prepared under the supervision of the Warsaw School of Economics, we assessed over 200 Polish towns where shared mobility solutions are present.
In the report of the first edition of the Mobile City Title, the premiere of which will take place during this year’s New Mobility Congress (KNM), we assessed all the locations in Poland where self-service shared mobility services were available in 2022: bike, e-scooter, e-moped and car sharing systems.
The nationwide ranking of cities friendly to shared mobility was based on two measures: diversity in terms of modalities of shared mobility services and the number of shared vehicles per 1,000 inhabitants (density of the offer). This assessment was expressed in the Quantitative Shared Mobility Index, according to which the examined towns were ranked, thus creating a nationwide ranking of over 200 towns.
We awarded the Mobile City Title in four categories, taking into account the size of the cities: less than 30k inhabitants, 30-100k inhabitants, 100-300k inhabitants and over 300k inhabitants. In each of these categories, the cities that received the highest ratings were awarded a diploma (places 1-3) or a distinction (places 4-5). In addition, all of them have undergone a complementary, qualitative assessment in terms of their openness and friendliness towards shared mobility solutions. This in-depth assessment was expressed in the Qualitative Shared Mobility Index, and it consisted of 20 measures divided into 4 areas: transport diversification, regulations and policy, infrastructure and data and technology.
The substantive supervision over the Mobile City City was taken by the Warsaw School of Economics, and its experts were included in the jury of this award.
Diplomas of the Mobile City Title will be awarded during the gala of this year’s New Mobility Congress (KNM) on September 26th and the report will be released on September 27th.
