Montgomery County, Maryland E-Scooter Pilot Program

The City is participating in the Montgomery County Dockless Vehicle-Sharing Demonstration Project. The County program allows selected companies to deploy dockless e-scooters at no cost to the municipality, while users pay a rental fee for them.

In the coming weeks, e-scooters by Bird will be available in four locations: near the train stations in both Olde Towne and Metropolitan Grove, in the Kentlands commercial district, and in the vicinity of Crown and Washingtonian. Free clinics on how to ride the scooters safely are being held in September and October. Read more here.

 

This is a City of Gaithersburg, Maryland announcement.

Hi Roy - I would love to try on of those scooters.  I have seen them in some places.

Roy, these scooters are being used.  I saw them in Salt Lake City and in Twin Falls.

Hello Roy - alternative modes of transportation can have its advantages - learning how to avoid them as they speed down public sidewalks or on the roads can be a new challenge.  Safety and being/staying considerate is important.

Good morning Roy. I think these scooters in dense areas can be a big plus. All we have to do is properly train the humans who operate them. And they have to follow the rules. Enjoy your day.

The future seems to be electric so I think this program will have some success and people in your area will enjoy it.

Hi Roy... I've seen these used in Uptown Charlotte... but not much in other parts of the City. But I'll admit, sometimes I get a bit nervous when I see how people "drive" them.

Sometimes that type of transportation can be an easy ride, but other times the sidewalks can be dangerous...

My thoughts went immediately to the 'Safety Factor' and so I was pleased to see classes at least being offered.  Enjoy the rest of your Sunday Roy.  Mark

I'm glad classes are being offered.  The safety factor mentioned seems like a real one!

Morning Roy.

Back in the day I would have loved to ride one of those, now I'm not taking the chance.
