    In this episode, I’m chatting with the CEO and co-founder of Swiftmile, Colin Roche. Swiftmile is a micromobility infrastructure company building out hubs across the United States and Europe. I think Swiftmile is the perfect city solution, as it helps corral all of the scooters, ebikes, etc. in ways that improve micromobility and reduce congestion. We’ll talk about how Swiftmile works with cities, the micromobility environment, and more.
