The City of Boulder has completed a one-year pilot program for shared Lime electric scooters (e-scooters) in East Boulder and invites community members to share their feedback through a brief questionnaire by Friday, Sept. 30.
Community input will help city staff evaluate the program and determine whether shared e-scooters contribute to the city’s mobility, equity, safety and climate goals. In addition to questionnaire responses, the city will analyze e-scooter usage data and feedback from the past year to inform decisions on the program’s future.
The city launched the e-scooter pilot program in 2021 as part of its Shared Micromobility Program, in partnership with the University of Colorado Boulder, Boulder County, the Boulder Chamber, Lime and BCycle. E-scooters provide a convenient and environmentally friendly way for Boulder community members to live, work and play around Boulder without a car.
“This program provides an option for community members to get around town without a car and helps work toward the city’s overall climate goal of decreasing greenhouse gas emissions 70% by 2030,” said Transportation Senior Planner Dave “DK” Kemp. “The last year has been an opportunity for learning and gathering data in this space, and we look forward to hearing community feedback about this initiative.”
Community members can respond to the questionnaire on Be Heard Boulder.
