Shared Electric Scooter Pilot

The Howard County Office of Transportation oversees the permitting process for shared electric scooters. The first permit was granted for the period from March 23, 2022 to March 22, 2023. Spin was awarded the permit and is operating a six-month pilot program through Thanksgiving.

As the pilot period comes to an end, an Opportunity for Public Comment was held during Multimodal Transportation Board's monthly meeting on October 25, 2022 via Webex. The scooter presentation will be posted here shortly.

Additionally, our survey to gather feedback will remain open until December 23, 2022.

After the pilot and feedback period end, adjustments to the permit requirements will be considered and advertising will begin for applications for the second permitting period.
