The City of Miami authorized a six-month pilot program allowing rental motorized scooters to operate in District 2. District 2 includes Coconut Grove, Brickell, Downtown Miami, Edgewater and Morningside.
Six companies are participating in the pilot program – Bird, Bolt, Jump, Lime, Lyft and Spin. Each company will start with up to 50 scooters during the first two weeks, upon which they may increase to 100 scooters. Operators may increase fleet size by 25% monthly if usage rates indicate enough demand (exceeds 3 rides per scooter per day), or decrease if usage rates decline (less than 2 rides per scooter per day).
If a company is not properly addressing problems, such as moving scooters blocking the right of way or responding to complaints, program participation can be reduced or revoked.
