Term Local Electric Scooter Transportation
Code BT-4500.4800
Definition Programs that provide services which support people's ability to use electric scooters for local transportation purposes. Included are electric scooter rental companies that have city-issued licenses to provide discounts for low income riders. Some cities have asked e-scooter companies seeking operational city permits for their scooters to include payment plans that serve low-income individuals, e.g., those who are on local, state or federal aid programs. The city may also require that the companies have an equity plan that addresses payment barriers for those who don't have bank accounts or smartphones. Most companies require customers to fill out a form (often available online) to determine if they qualify for the program, and will need to submit front and back photos of qualifying documents.
