Ordinance and Urgency Ordinance Prohibiting Shared On-Demand Motorized Scooters
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Recent transportation and technology innovations and community interest in new mobility options have created a new market for shared on-demand dockless electric scooters. While this equipment offers a new, low-emission transportation option, the use of this technology may result in shared equipment being placed or left virtually anywhere in the public right-of-way, and shared equipment being operated by users in a manner that is considered unsafe to the operator or other users of public spaces. Note: See NOE for descriptions
