Everett e-scooter pilot update tonight at council meeting

City Council is considering permanently adding the rentable scooters to city.

EVERETT — In May, 100 rentable e-scooters rolled into town for a three-month trial run.


As it comes to an end, the Everett City Council is set to receive an update tonight (Aug. 14) on the pilot as councilmembers consider permanently adding the battery-powered scooters to Everett.

Lime, one of the nation’s leading scooter-rental and bike-share companies, has said the pilot has exceeded expectations.

The scooters cost riders $1 to unlock and 25 cents per minute thereafter.

The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. in city council chambers, 2930 Wetmore Ave.
