The town council this week discussed a proposal
from Santa Monica-based Bird Rides Inc.
, along with Virginia law and safety considerations. The electric scooters would operate on town streets with speed limits of 25 mph or less and potentially on sidewalks along routes with higher speed limits. A town task force continues to study the issue. Bird provides rentals of electric scooters and/or bikes in more than 100 cities, including some in Northern Virginia.
