This week, the City saw the launch of e-scooter rental services after Council earlier approved an e-scooter pilot period and allowed the devices on City roads. Based on the social media interactions I've had, I thought it might be useful to provide a little more information about the scooters and how to use them. You're likely seeing them parked around the City and parts of our ward, or have seen people riding them around.
