We believe that affordable, accessible, and equitable mobility is a Human right

We strive everyday to help build innovative shared transportation programs with local partners across the country that help uplift the communities they serve. 

 

What we do

Micromobility

Micromobility systems are a vital component of a region’s transportation system. Electric and conventional micromobility systems are a backbone of active transportation and are most effective when integrated with other programs.

Volunteer Transportation 

While often not as visible, volunteer transportation programs provide essential access to services for those without a car, especially those in rural areas.

Carsharing

Our roots trace back to Buffalo CarShare and we continue to find ways to build equitable carsharing

Strategic Mobility Planning

A foundation of our work is directly with municipalities, community-based organizations, and others in the communities our programs serve. Coordination and open-dialogue is important to making shared mobility systems open and equitable for everyone

Demonstrations and Pilots

No successful shared mobility program can be put in place without progressive, intuitive, and locally focused education efforts. Demonstrations and pilots are a crucial piece of our work

E-bike Libraries

We are partnered with local community-based organizations around the country to launch community-controlled transportation options that are completely free to use. E-Bike Libraries provide access to pedal assist e-bikes through programming models designed by and for marginalized communities.

Our History

Shared Mobility Inc. (SMI) of Buffalo, New York is a transportation solutions nonprofit that focuses on cutting-edge technology and best practices to build mobility systems that serve disadvantaged communities in small and mid-sized markets. These communities are not traditional markets for shared mobility operators, and SMI’s work often requires tailoring mobility solutions to fit the needs of each area. 

 

Founded in 2009 as Buffalo CarShare, SMI has transitioned to work across the mobility spectrum. Throughout its 10 years of experience, SMI has worked across the shared mobility spectrum in the fundraising, deployment, growth, and evaluation of bikesharing, carsharing, volunteer transportation, vanpooling, and transportation demand management programs. It seeks to apply the same social-equity focused mindset to its nationwide portfolio of projects.
