Lyft launched a fleet of electric scooters in Denver on Thursday, stepping squarely into the rapidly growing scooter-sharing market so far dominated by the likes of Bird and Lime. According to Bird, the company now deploys 8,000 scooters throughout Los Angeles and estimates place the number of Lime scooters in a similar range. But other people have complained that riders don't follow the laws of the road and endanger pedestrians by riding on sidewalks and leaving the scooters wherever they feel like it - blocking parking spots, bike racks and wheelchair access.
Last month, Lyft also got approval to operate electric scooters in Santa Monica, California, along with Uber's Jump, Bird and Lime. Lyft has plans to initially operate 350 scooters, starting with 100 scooters strategically placed around "opportunity zones", which are appointed as being low-income areas by public transportation. Companies may add 2,500 devices in disadvantaged communities in Los Angeles and an additional 5,000 devices in disadvantaged communities in the San Fernando Valley.
The transportation service joins the likes of Bird and Lime, earlier startups that kickstarted the electric scooter-sharing trend.
The council also approved a top speed of the scooters of 15 miles per hour, which is the speed already offered by Bird and Lime.
Other provisions include a requirement that scooter companies will have to develop technology to make sure devices are parked upright. It is illegal to ride any motorized vehicle on a sidewalk in Winston-Salem, downtown or anywhere in the city.
