New Orleans Halts Electric Scooter Pilot Program Citing Safety and Enforcement Concerns

NEW ORLEANS - Today, Transportation Committee Chair Councilmember Kristin Gisleson Palmer and Mayor LaToya Cantrell's Administration announced the City will not move forward with implementing an electric scooter program. Since May, they have been working to establish a pilot program to permit and regulate dockless electric scooters and the companies operating them. After research, community feedback, and weekly meetings to discuss potential regulations, both the City Council and the Cantrell administration have determined that a pilot program is not feasible at this time.
