D.C. Congresswoman Calls for E-Scooters to Be Permitted on Capitol Grounds

Go Back

WASHINGTON – Ryan McConaghy, Executive Director of The Micromobility Coalition (TMC), issued the following statement after Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) sent a letter to the U.S. Capitol Police urging they allow e-scooters on Capitol Grounds:

“The Micromobility Coalition commends Congresswoman Norton for taking the lead in advocating for thousands of D.C. residents and visitors who rely upon micromobility services to get around the city. Her letter to U.S. Capitol Police correctly points out the need to classify e-scooters in the same way as other personal transportation options like motorized bicycles, mopeds, and Segways, and not as ‘Skating and Play Vehicles,’ like they are currently deemed. With proper classification, e-scooters can finally come to Capitol Hill and help increase access for the thousands of Hill staffers, D.C. residents, and tourists who visit every day. Member companies of TMC look forward to continuing the conversation and to potentially working with U.S. Capitol Police to create a safe, welcoming environment for e-scooter riders.”
