Oklahoma City Council adopts rental scooter regulations
Scooters are here to stay.
The Oklahoma City Council on Tuesday adopted regulations for the popular "dockless" electric scooters introduced to downtown earlier this year by two California companies.
The rules allow Lime and Bird, and others that may enter the market, to have fleets of 250 scooters.
The companies may add up to 100 scooters at a time upon showing that vehicles in their existing fleet are being rented a minimum of three times per day.
Scooters are activated with a smartphone app.
Riders pay an activation fee plus a rate per mile to ride.
