Dockless e-Scooters Join County’s Expanding Programs for Dockless Bikes and e-Bikes
With dockless bikes and e-bikes having been tested and enjoyed in several areas of the County, the County’s Department of Transportation is expanding the program to an add a pilot program for dockless e-scooters.
Three companies have been selected to deploy dockless e-scooters and e-bikes at no cost to the County. The demonstration project will include monthly free e-scooter training sessions.
Lyft will provide e-scooters in the East County Service Area; Bird will provide e-scooters in the West County Service Area; and Lime will provide both e-bikes and e-scooters in both service areas. Each company’s vehicles will be limited to operation within their specific geo-fenced service area. All vendors require that riders be at least 18 years old and have a valid driver’s license.
