Lime Scooter Presentation – Owen Christofferson with information from last year’s scooter pilot findings report from PBOT. Last year there was a pilot program and the scooters have been approved for a year-long pilot this year. Number of rides: 700,000+, average trip length 1.15 miles, in East Portland average trip length was 1.6 miles.

Each scooter has a license number – contact Lime or the city of Portland to report bad riding behavior or bad parking jobs. If a scooter is reported being in the public right-of-way, Lime has thirty minutes to retrieve it. Rental costs: $1 to unlock, $0.20/minute thereafter.

Questions: is there any consideration for 3-wheel-type scooters for people with balance or mobility issues?  (more…)
