The Phoenix Street Transportation Department is developing a strategy to expand the city’s Shared Micromobilty Program. The program, which launched permanently in January 2023 with vendors Lime and Spin, includes the use of e-scooters, e-bikes, traditional pedal bikes and adaptive bikes.
The program currently operates in the city’s downtown core, as well as areas to the south, west and east of downtown.
The department is considering options to expand the program’s geographic boundaries and vehicle inventory. Residents are encouraged to provide input by participating in a citywide virtual public meeting on October 23 at 6 p.m., and by taking an online community survey available through November 15. The survey, offered in English and Spanish, and information about how to participate in the virtual public meeting is available at Phoenix.gov/Scooters.
Various vendors have operated e-scooters in downtown Phoenix since September 2019 as part of a city-managed pilot program. In December 2022, City Council authorized the Street Transportation Department to finalize an agreement with Lime and Spin to be the official vendors when the pilot program ended. The permanent program began in January 2023.
