In October 22nd 2022, Department of Transportation Commissioner Ydanis Rodriguez announced the Phase 2 expansion of its e-scooter share pilot in the eastern Bronx, doubling the program's footprint after recording over half of a million rides without any recorded serious injuries.
"Bronxites deserve the same range of transportation options as other New Yorkers, and this pilot expansion is a step in the right direction," said New York City Mayor Eric Adams. "Our administration will continue working closely with communities and taking action to help New Yorkers and visitors get around the city safely and efficiently."
"We're thrilled to build on our successful e-scooter pilot in the Bronx and offer this safe and efficient travel option to even more residents," said Commissioner Rodriguez. "This expansion will serve important first- and last-mile trips for commuters accessing the NYC Ferry and 6 train in the eastern section of the Bronx. We thank our pilot partners Bird, Lime, and Veo, for helping the city deliver a safe, reliable, and accessible service for Bronxites."
