Electric scooters returned to Ottawa’s streets this past week following the City of Ottawa’s approval this spring for the fourth season of a pilot project.
As many as 900 scooters from operators Neuron Mobility and Bird Canada will be available for commuters to rent.
Complaints about sidewalk riding and haphazard parking dogged the program in previous seasons.
.... Also, riding on sidewalks carries a fine of $150.
In a media release, Neuron Mobility said it was launching new “augmented reality parking assistant technology” to increase parking compliance and the use of designated parking stations.
