The Micromobility Coalition Congratulates Chicago on Bringing Back E-Scooters 2019 Pilot Program Demonstrated High Demand, Need for Micromobility in the Windy City

Go Back

WASHINGTON – Ryan McConaghy, executive director of The Micromobility Coalition, today issued the following statement on the return of e-scooters to Chicago:

“In a city where more accessible and affordable transportation options are sorely needed, we commend Mayor Lightfoot and her administration for signing on for another pilot program to bring back e-scooters. Chicago’s e-scooter pilot program last year saw more than 800,000 trips in just four months, demonstrating that demand for this revolutionary transportation mode is high. Equally encouraging was the number of e-scooter trips taken during the morning and evening rush hour commutes, which highlights the power of e-scooters to take cars off the road and ease traffic congestion.

“We are confident that this pilot will prove to be as well-received in 2020 as it was last year. We look forward to working with the Mayor and her team to bring e-scooters to Chicago permanently. Commuters deserve convenient, eco-friendly, and safe transportation options that reduce traffic and make commuting more enjoyable overall.”
