SMI announces partnership with EIT InnoEnergy for $7 million NY Clean Transportation Prize project

Updated: Dec 14, 2023

Our team at Shared Mobility Inc. (SMI) is proud to announce a partnership with EIT InnoEnergy, a European Union funded climate innovation ecosystem, to develop and deploy e-bike access programs as part of Project MOVER.

Project MOVER (Moving Onto Vast E-micromobility Replication) is a $7 million project funded by the New York Clean Transportation Prizes that aims to fill mobility gaps in five socio-economically diverse Westchester County communities with e-bikeshare, e-bike library, and e-bike ownership programs.

SMI and Nelson\Nygaard staff engage with Village of Ossining residents to learn more about their local mobility needs and how they could benefit from Project MOVER.

Project MOVER is a partner consortium led by EIT InnoEnergy and includes SMI, Nelson\Nygaard, Cityfi, Mobility Development Partners, local municipalities, and community-based organizations. This project will provide the opportunity to bring affordable and clean micromobility to five Rivertown communities in Westchester County, starting in the Village of Ossining, aiming to serve as a blueprint for communities across the state.

SMI is excited to pair our experience as one of the nation’s leading mobility nonprofits with the technical expertise of Nelson\Nygaard and Cityfi as well as the deep understanding and insights of MOVER’s local partners. Our team will work closely with InnoEnergy to leverage their global network of transportation innovators, enhancing our community-controlled approach to building equitable and accessible mobility solutions.

SMI and Cityfi meet with Neighbors Link, one of Project MOVER’s community-based partners. Neighbors Link's focus is on building stronger communities through immigrant empowerment and integration in Westchester County.

Project MOVER is one of ten grand prize awards from the $85 million New York Clean Transportation Prizes program aimed to enhance clean transportation, improve mobility options, and reduce harmful emissions through innovative transportation solutions. Administered by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority in partnership with the New York State Department of Public Service and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the selected replicable projects represent transformative investments in underserved communities across New York State.

Village of Ossining Mayor Rika Levin addresses local stakeholders and the Project MOVER team about ongoing developments to enhance walkability and access to the Village’s central business district.

Our work is already underway as SMI and the whole Project MOVER team continue working to deploy e-bike programs in the Village of Ossining beginning in 2024. Stay tuned for more updates coming soon!
