Shared Mobility

Bike and Scooter Share


Predictable Locations. Safer Speeds. Rules of the Road Apply.

We are bringing forward a proposal to transition our current regional bikeshare program to an all electric fleet, with the potential to also introduce an electric scooter program -- if state regulations change to allow this. On June 3rd, we will be bringing this the full City Council.

As part of our ongoing effort to expand transportation options in Burlington, we are beginning steps to build a proposal for a 2019 electric bicycle share and electric scooter share.

Building off last year’s Greenride bike share program in our community, Burlington, South Burlington and Winooski are considering a much expanded venture this year with an all-electric fleet of shared bicycles and scooters. With environmental and public health benefits and less impact on roads, communities across the country are adopting this new approach to getting you to home, work, school and play. Let’s talk about how this works, the rules of the road and what we need to do to have this new mobility service work for our community. This is a collaborative effort between our three communities, CATMA, UVM, Champlain College, and the CCRPC.
