The City of Albany wants to know what the community thinks about Albany’s hireable e-scooters as it considers their future beyond the trial period. The online survey will gauge whether the community supports the City granting licences to Beam Mobility and Bird Rides that would allow them to continue operating after the 18-month trial ends in April. Councillors introduced new conditions to the trial in August, extending the initial 12-month trial by six months to see how the conditions would work during the busy summer months. Those changes, including fixed parking locations, have since led to a reduction in complaints, according to the City. The survey asks respondents if they have used the e-scooters and whether they have seen them used inappropriately as well as what they think about their suitability for Albany and their value to its transport network. The short survey will be on the City’s website until February 1. The City will compile the results and make a recommendation to the Council who will decide the future of the e-scooter program at March’s ordinary meeting.
