It has been eight months since the City of Alexandria began a pilot program allowing dockless mobility companies to deploy their fleets in the Virginia city, and now Alexandria wants to know more about what the public thinks.

Alexandria is soliciting public feedback now through Sept. 6 with an online survey, and that feedback will help determine the future of scooters and e-bikes.

City staff will prepare an evaluation report and a set of recommendations for consideration by the Alexandria City Council this fall, incorporating results on its online public survey.

This year’s pilot program was designed to evaluate the safety and popularity of dockless mobility devices and the performance of the companies that operate them. The city continues to monitor how and where they are used, how responsive the companies have been and the safety of the scooters and bikes.
