We are committed to providing scooters and e-bikes as a mode of transportation for everyone in KCMO. This means not only placing devices in high-ridership areas, but strategically deploying scooters and bikes in all parts of KCMO, intentional outreach with community partners to promote and engage residents in the program, and working with the providers to continually improve the program.
