The scooters are coming


Be on the lookout for electric scooters sharing the bike lane.

Mayor LaToya Cantrell?s administration is working to bring scooter rentals to New Orleans streets, pending approval from the New Orleans City Council and arrangements with third-party companies that will set up their fleets in neighborhoods around town.

Lime scooters ? spawning across the U.S. and currently all over California and recently launched in Atlanta and Dallas, to varying degrees of ridicule and success ? operates similarly to bike-rental companies like New Orleans' Blue Bikes: download an app, find a kiosk, unlock a 1990s Razor-esque electric scooter for $1 using a QR code, and scoot around for 15 cents a minute. The scooters then are picked up and recharged in a warehouse.

On June 28, the New Orleans City Council?s Transportation Committee heard Lime's pitch for a New Orleans outpost before city officials create a framework ?*an update to the city's regulation of "Motorized Novelty Vehicles"*? for scooter companies and rentals to operate legally on the streets.
