E-scooters have arrived in Colorado Springs!

E-scooters are a popular mode of “micro-mobility” transportation in cities across America and now in Colorado Springs.  The City of Colorado Springs is conducting a one-year pilot program beginning October 2021 and has selected the scooter sharing operators Lime and Veo to participate in the pilot.

E-scooters provide an alternative, flexible and affordable way for people to travel short distances and can help reduce vehicle traffic and free-up parking.

E-scooters are particularly suited for urban areas, where they can support the needs beyond walking distance without the use of personal vehicles. Visitors can park once, then travel through the city core via scooter. 

Scooters can also help address “first and last mile” challenges for transit users improving mobility from bus stops to/from final destinations. (Note: rented scooters are not allowed in Mountain Metro Transit buses or vehicles.)
