City of Bloomington, Indiana – John Hamilton, Mayor

closed: Resolved #166102

Blocked Sidewalk:

Other: What is the deal with these electric scooters everywhere?? I realize they are fun and also help students (or, mostly students I have seen) get around, but they are literally LITTERING the streets. In one block on my walk to work, there were five scooters parked. I rode my bike to work this afternoon and there were five scooters parked in front of the Indiana Ave. Starbucks, and I had to move two of them to use the bike rack because they were completely blocking the rack. I have seen them abandoned everywhere, including on the trail around Bryan Park. Is the business to put them out going around to collect them at any point? If so, how often are they collecting them? Does the city have rules on these things? Are we supposed to share sidewalks with electric scooters? I am all for alternative transportation, and love the PACE bike program, but these scooters seem to be out of control.

Hi Julie, My apologies for the delayed response to your inquiry. I appreciate you writing with your concerns, which others share. We are tracking instances of misplaced scooters as we learn about them and are keeping a watchful eye on the roll-out, including evaluation what the city might do to ensure a positive experience for everyone. There is a right way for these companies to implement these systems, and a wrong way. We are working with them to ensure they deliver the former. Thanks again, Alex
