Mobility Data Specification (MDS)
United States of America (the)

MDS standardizes communication and data-sharing between cities and private mobility providers, such as e-scooter and bike-share companies.

MDS gives cities insight into how their public realm is being navigated, and the tools to improve that experience for all. 

  • Real-time and historic data allows better planning and program management
  • Digital management greatly reduces operating costs and staff time spent monitoring mobility programs and service providers
  • Allows real-time policy changes to be made to adapt to planned events and emergencies
  • Supports policies that allow dynamic pricing, equitable access, and safety initiatives¬†
