No one knows how to solve problem of scooters in cities [Local 10 News]


Earlier this year, Scoot, a San Francisco-based subsidiary of Bird, restricted parking in Chinatown and the Tenderloin, a neighborhood with a significant homeless population. It said the decision resulted from narrow sidewalks, and concerns raised by the local community groups.

Groups were divided over a ban. Fernando Pujals, spokesperson for the Tenderloin Community Benefit District, said he reached out to Scoot about crowded sidewalk concerns, but didn't want a ban.

"People should be given just as much access as somebody in an affluent neighborhood," he said. "Our recommendation was how to bring scooters into the neighborhood in a thoughtful way that would encourage ridership." Read the article via Local 10 News.
