The Mobility Data Collaborative and the Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) collaboratively developed a practical set of resources for organizations to ensure appropriate legal and policy review of mobility data sharing initiatives, as well as assess the fairness of these initiatives. Collectively, these resources make up the Mobility Data Sharing Assessment (MDSA):
The MDSA is designed to be a flexible and scalable process and to support transparent and accountable decision-making about how and when to share mobility data between organizations. This initial MDSA is intended for any organization or group that wants to share or receive mobility data related to shared ground-based transportation, such as rideshare and e-scooters. The MDSA was also designed for on-going data sharing initiatives (e.g., research projects, permit requirements, commercial licenses, or voluntary partnerships); it is not meant for one-off data sharing requests or internal data operations.
