Rental Scooters Coming to Chicago

Shared electric scooters, much like the blue Divvy Bikes seen all over downtown Chicago, are coming to the city in June according to the Chicago Tribune.

A pilot program will allow scooter sharing to begin in neighborhoods like Austin, Avondale, Pilsen and South Lawndale, but leaving out the Loop and communities along the lakefront.

Chicago is using the pilot to test how scooters can help reduce car use, get commuters to and from transit and increase access to transportation.

The program will run June 15 to October 15th and will limit the scooter speeds to 15mph.
