Requirements for Permit Applicants

Mobility Data Specification

In order to manage a large number of dockless devices on streets and sidewalks, the new policy requires Dockless Mobility Providers to share information with the City of Emeryville (under the Mobility Data Specification, or MDS). The City is subscribing to the same set of rules and regulations that have been developed by the City of Los Angeles. L.A developed the Mobility Data Specification to create standard communications between cities and private companies to improve their operations, allowing cities to collect data that can, in turn, inform real-time traffic management and public policy decisions to enhance safety and equity. The MDS helps the City adhere to a consistent standard with many other cities locally and nationally.
