E-scooter revolution to hit the streets of Hoboken
Hoboken is bringing electric scooters to its streets.

City council approved an ordinance to allow for a six-month pilot program.   

Four hundred scooters will be parked at docking stations around the city.  They'll go up to 20 miles per hour and can be used in bike lanes.  

The mayor said the scooters will be good for the environment and help traffic.   

"For every scooter that a resident uses, we're hoping gets one less car on the street which is good for the environment, for the city, and it's just a better way to move people from one place to another," said Mayor Ravi Bhalla. 

The city is working with Lime and P3GM to provide the scooters.
