WASHINGTON – The Micromobility Coalition today issued the following statement after the New York Senate and Assembly passed legislation authorizing electric bikes and scooters across the Empire State and encouraging cities to adopt local regulations for these shared micromobility services:
“We commend State Senator Jessica Ramos and Assemblywoman Nily Rozic for their work to bring e-bikes and e-scooters to New York. This important measure allows city officials the opportunity to bring shared micromobility services to their communities, as well as the ability to create rules tailored to their local needs.
“We are hopeful the long-term success of micromobility in other cities across the state will show officials from New York City the tremendous value of bringing these safe, affordable, and eco-friendly services to their residents. We are excited to see New Yorkers have the chance to take full advantage of micromobility benefits and begin building a sustainable transportation system for the future.”
