The ITE Vision Zero Standing Committee, Pedestrian and Bicycle Standing Committee, and Mobility as a Service (MaaS)/Mobility on Demand (MOD) Institute Initiative identified the need to share emerging policies and practices of e-scooter safety under MaaS/MOD and Vision Zero programs in cities. This webinar will feature speakers from three communities where e-scooters are in use to present their agency's background, information, and experiences on Vision Zero and e-scooters. This webinar will highlight how e-scooter safety is being considered under Vision Zero programs in Atlanta, Georgia, Austin, Texas, and Washington, District of Columbia, US. The webinar will highlight how public agencies can consider and plan for the safety impacts of e-scooters in cities, especially when considering programs and permits for MOD shared micromobility devices like e-bikes and e-scooters.
This webinar will also touch on how cities and some providers are partnering to ensure safe riding of e-scooters and how cities are re-designing streets to provide safe places to ride e-scooters. The presenter will cover policy, data and street design trends for e-scooter safety, and how to consider e-scooter safety in a Vision Zero program.
