How’s Baltimore doing with dockless bikes and scooters? Here’s a chance to weigh in

The city's transportation department offered up a survey to collect feedback on the pilot program.

The arrival of dockless transportation options in Baltimore over the summer provided new options for commuters, and the city government with a chance to break from its bikeshare program.

The dockless options paved the way for e-scooters from Bird and Lime which immediately became popular downtown, as well as the recent debut of Lime’s e-bikes. There was also a new transit tech feature, as Lime and Google Maps collaborated to add nearby scooters as a navigation option.

But a few months in, it’s worth remembering that the new options are an experiment of sorts in and of itself. The companies are operating under a six-month pilot agreement with the city’s transportation department.

That means it will be re-evaluated at the end of February, and like any outfit doing user testing on a new product the city is seeking opinions from the public. To collect feedback about the program, DOT released a new survey.

“Total response of from all participants may be shared in an evaluation report and be used to help shape DOT services in the future,” DOT states.
