Increased emissions of polluting materials and noise emissions by motor vehicles, contributing to the reduction of air quality and life of all residents. One of the possible solutions to the problem of environmental pollution in cities is the use of micromobility vehicles. Micromobility implies the use of small vehicles that have zero emissions and do not emit noise. The results of previous research indicate that the use of "micro" vehicles can significantly contribute to the reduction of environmental pollution, taking into account their characteristics and the type of drive they carry. Bearing in mind the above, the goal of this work is to analyze the impact of micromobility vehicles on the environment, as well as the analysis of factors that influence the acceptability of the use of this type of mobility by the public. The results of the research indicate that micromobility vehicles can have a significant potential in reducing environmental pollution, which can influence changes in modal shift. A comprehensive analysis of the impact of micromobility vehicles presented in the paper can be a useful basis for decision-making when defining a strategy for reducing environmental pollution.
