This week, Oliver interviews micromobility industry veteran Tarani Duncan about her journey and views on the development of the micromobility industry. She’s a fount of knowledge, and this was a really fun discussion on the history of the space.
Specifically we dig into:
- Her childhood and study in New Orleans, and how that led her to studying transport
- Her early days in operations fixing the early NYC Citibike system
- Joining the team at Social Bicycles, which became Jump, including a discussion about social incentives and the acquisition by Uber.
- Her experience at Mapbox building routing software for some of the largest delivery companies in the world - Joining Shared as the first operations lead
- A discussion about the wide range of companies she’s advising in the space, including OurStreets, Tortoise, Karmic and DataContours
- Why she’s the first member of the Human Scooting Association
- The low hanging fruit for the shared industry
- Why micromobility matters to her, and why she’s still very bullish on the space.
