Application Programming Interfaces
As a condition of operating in Arlington, Shared Mobility Device (SMD) operators are required to provide publicly accessible Application Programming Interfaces (API). APIs provide information to the public on where SMD devices are located and the type of device (e-scooter or e-bike).
There is no personally identifiable information presented in these APIs, and they only display the location of devices available for rental, not devices in use.
Arlington County has made these APIs available to the public for research and for mobile apps. Additional APIs will be provided as new operators are permitted in the County.
