The Chicago area has not yet permitted scooter companies to start ride-sharing services that are available in other cities. Proponents say that electric scooters could be useful for trips to and from transit and to fill the gap in options for short-hop trips and could help more households do without a car although there are critics. Leading a discussion of the pros and cons and what we might expect in micro-mobility transportation options will be Maggie Melin, an Advocacy Manager at the Active Transportation Alliance, an advocacy group for bikes, pedestrians, and transit. Also, Matthias Donelan, Lime's Operations Manager in Chicago, will bring some Lime scooters to view and test ride. This is the monthly meeting of the Evanston Bicycle Club, free of charge and all are welcome.
