Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.

The Shared-Use Mobility Center (SUMC) is a public-interest organization working to foster collaboration in shared mobility (including bikesharing, carsharing, ridesharing and more) and help connect the growing industry with transit agencies, cities and communities across the nation. Through piloting programs, conducting new research and providing advice and expertise to cities and regions, SUMC hopes to extend the benefits of shared mobility for all.
SUMC, a 501(c)(3) organization, was founded with a portion of the proceeds from the sale of IGO CarSharing after IGO was sold to Enterprise Holdings. IGO was a social venture founded by the Center for Neighborhood Technology. Sharon Feigon, IGO’s former CEO, is SUMC’s Executive Director.
SUMC is focused on bringing together a wide range of interests - including government, industry, non-governmental organizations, and academics - to share best practices, conduct research, develop model policies and serve as a testing ground for building the shared-use mobility industry. Our initial work includes:
Convening public and private sector leaders to facilitate collaboration through:
Regional mobility summits and workshops
Conducting research and developing new resources, such as:
Industry outlook and trend reports
Online policy and best practices repository
White papers on equity and other mobility issues
Collaborating with cities to scale shared mobility systems, including:
Assisting with RFP development
Helping design and launch pilot programs
Designing interactive tools cities can use to identify service gaps and more
