ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.— The Albuquerque City Council has approved a measure that would allow rid-sharing scooter companies to operate in the city.
Bird and Lime, two of the largest electric scooter companies, showed off their scooters at Albuquerque’s Civic Plaza Monday.
Councilor Pat Davis sponsored the legislation to open the roads to scooters.
"We're making this easy for people to use, but we're being tough on the companies to make sure they have systems in place to -- that if someone is disgruntled or unhappy, that they have to respond to us," Davis said.
An official with Mayor Keller’s office said he will review the legislation and look into safety issues before signing off on it.
