WASHINGTON – Ryan McConaghy, executive director of the Micromobility Coalition, today issued the following statement regarding a provision in New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s budget proposal to legalize e-scooters and e-bikes in the Empire State:
“We commend Governor Cuomo for his leadership in expanding micromobility in New York. E-bikes and e-scooters help take cars off the road, reduce congestion, and connect residents to public transportation and job opportunities. We encourage members of the State Assembly and State Senate to do as they did last year and pass a proposal as soon as possible to allow communities across New York to benefit from these safe, affordable, eco-friendly, and revolutionary transportation services.”
