The Regulation Page

Introduction to the Regulation Page

The Regulation dashboard allows you to digitally translate regulation and road safety rules into the platform. You can create temporary or permanent policies and visualize the list of active, pending, and expired regulations.

Who Uses the Regulation Page?

In many cities, mobility operators must abide by a set of conditions in order to operate. These policies* or regulations* are used by program managers to record these conditions spatially, and to monitor compliance with them. You may find yourself creating regulations as a program manager in order to enforce these provisions.

What is the Regulation Page for?

The Regulation page allows you to create the library of policies your city is enforcing. The policy includes both the geographic boundaries you are covering (the entire city, a district or subdistrict, or a custom area) as well as the metadata about the policy- when does it apply, for what type of operators, and other specific information.
When published, these policies are both visible to operators on their Cityscope dashboards and communicated to them in an API so that they can incorporate the information into customer-facing apps.

Creating Policies

There are several types of policies available to be created in the platform. For an exhaustive description of the metrics calculated for each policy, review the "Defining Metrics and Key Performance Indicators" article.

Cap, Floor*, and Cap and Floor* restrict the number of devices in a location. Caps set a maximum number of devices each operator is permitted to have in their fleet in the designated area (available, reserved and unavailable). Floors set a minimum number of devices each operator is required to have in their fleet in the designated area.

Low Speed zones govern the speed at which devices are permitted to operate in the zone.

Max Parked and *Max Unavailable compel the operator to either limit the number of devices which can be parked or unavailable at any given time, or limit the duration of time any device can be pared or unavailable.

No Go zones restrict both riding and parking in the areas they cover.

No Parking zones restrict parking in the locations they are present in

Parking zones indicate the city's preferred (or required) parking locations.

After selecting a policy type, you have the ability to set a geography- selecting the entire city or a particular district. Additionally, you have the ability to upload a GeoJSON, or draw the shape yourself using the drawing tools.

You can add further criteria to the policy, adding a date range (you can also leave it open-ended), limit the days of the week or hours of the day during which the policy applies, limit the types of devices or the providers for whom the policies cover.
