City of Milwaukee to take part in dockless scooter pilot study
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Public Works Committee ruled for a new pilot study to take place regarding dockless scooters being used in the city.
The committee ruled for the study on a 10% usership for riders on the sidewalk.
Different parts of the city will be split into zones based on population/pedestrian traffic for analysis of using a scooter on the sidewalk versus the street.
The committee could also revoke permit for all scooters or a specific company's scooters at any time for violations.
"The main point of contention is, would there be automatic triggers that would result in the termination of the program or would we require reports that come back to committee," said 4th District Alderman Robert Bauman.
The study will take place from June 25-July 9.
