ASPEN, Colo. (AP) — A Colorado city has enacted a waiting period for companies that provide scooter and e-bike services.
The Aspen Times reports that the Aspen City Council approved a six-month delay for dockless mobility companies Monday.
Officials say the city wants to work with businesses and the public to develop a management plan.
Dockless mobility companies provide e-bikes, trikes and scooters that can be collected and returned at several places to allow customers to rent the devices for short periods without going to a central location.
Some Aspen councilors say the city needs a plan to meet the growing transportation trend, which they say raises issues including right-of-way management, safety, vandalism, city oversight, and local business impact.
Current regulations require operators to obtain an Aspen business license and a temporary encroachment license.
