  • New technology, particularly electrification, but also connectivity that is leading to rapid development of new products and solutions.
  • Increasing urbanisation, both in absolute numbers and density.
  • Climate change, air and noise polution and other growing environmental challenges.
  • Demographic changes including our aging population and increased leisure time.
  • Increase of online shopping and food delivery requiring fast, efficient solutions.
  • Improving safety, access and equality for groups including those with a disability, children, those with economic or social disadvantages etc.
  • Growing government awareness of all the above issues, leading to increasing funding and incentives.
    1. Providing an effective conduit for you as a micromobility product or service provider to connect your potential customers.
    2. Informing and educating both service providers and customers about a wide range of topics including: best practices, latest trends, upcoming opportunities, new technologies, new policies, regulations and funding.
    3. Providing ‘ammunition’ for advocates within all levels of government, business and other organisations to convince decision makers and funders about the benefits of micro mobility.
    4. Providing networking opportunities, discussion forums etc for peers who might not otherwise meet or connect.
    5. Through all of the above, the Micromobility Report will help accelerate the implementation and adoption of micro mobility solutions Australia-wide.

About Phil Latz

Phil Latz started racing bicycles in 1972 at the age of 10. He started a bicycle media business, Bicycling Australia, in 1989, initially with one magazine of the same name.

Over the next 25 years this business grew to encompass Mountain Biking Australia, Bicycling Trade, Bicycling Yearbook, the Bicycling Australia Show, Where to Ride cycling guidebooks and a range of other activities. Phil progressively sold parts of the business in to three separate buyers between 2014 and 2017. After two years working as Development Director for We Ride Australia, Phil resigned from that role to found The Latz Report. In late 2020 he founded the Micromobility Report.

He also works as a consultant for various organisations and as a business coach. He can be contacted at phil@thelatzreport.com.au or on 02 4225 8372.

About The Logo

The cog with 16 teeth that surrounds the logo is a reference to a very basic magazine called Sprocket that Phil started publishing from the age of 16. Sprocket covered the South Australian road and track racing scene through the early 1980’s. It marks a ‘bookend’ as Sprocket was the first of Phil’s many publications.

The Micromobility Report logo has been designed with the same brand concept as The Latz Report logo, to bring together a family of publications aimed at accelerating the implementation and adoption of micromobility solutions Australia-wide.

The three progressive shades of green also have several meanings. The split 'M' starts with British Racing Green, associated with racing cars the progression to lighter shades implies that we should also embrace lighter forms of transport by choosing Micromobility solutions.

The lightest shade of green used for the 'R' reflects the eucalypt green used in the House of Representatives in the new Parliament House in Canberra. This reflects the national importance of micromobility and the need for the community to lobby our federal government to give it the support and recognition it deserves.

Finally the three green shades in combination reflect some key benefits of micromobility both for our natural environment and for our cities, in which so many Australians live.
