E-Scooter Pilot Program Begins This Week

Tomorrow, Sept. 12, is the launch date for the six-month pilot program for shared electric scooters. The e-scooter pilot program has been designed to maximize safety, minimize sidewalk riding and clutter, and test the viability of scooters as a mobility option in Tucson.

Over the initial pilot program, the City of Tucson and the Transportation Department will conduct an evaluation of the program to determine if and how shared electric scooters serve the transportation needs of the community.
