Electric scooter sharing from Bird, Lime, and Spin have been popping up all over California streets. These scooters first started to appear in Santa Monica and has continues to appear among highly populated cities across the US. San Francisco and Santa Monica are about halfway through both of their trial periods, where as, Culver City is just beginning. The trial period to determine whether or not these scooters can stay is from July 2018 until January 2019. The number of scooter in Culver city is determined by the average number of rides per scooter. If the average rides is below three, then the company has to remove scooters, but if the the average is above five, they can add more.

Santa Monica has impounded nay scooter that poses an “immediate hazard or obstructs access.” The city also issued 366 citations in the month of may. These scooters are meant to bridge the gap of the last mile between public transportation and where you need to go. In nine months there were 577,930 rides, which was broken down into estimate that 257,372 pounds of carbon emissions was saved if they were otherwise going to be in a car. Bird has also taken initiative to give away free helmets to riders that request them.
