Per Montgomery County:
Residents 18-and-older who are interested in electric scooter lessons will have the opportunity to attend free clinics on Saturdays, June 4 and 11, sponsored by the Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT). Participants can take a test ride, learn safety tips and get details on basic scooter laws. Participants must have a valid driver’s license. No registration is required to attend a clinic and walk ups are welcome. The clinics generally will last about two hours and e-scooters will be available at each site.
Those interested in e-scooters can stop in at any time during the two-hour clinics. The schedule of clinics:
- Saturday, June 4. Noon-2 p.m. Wheaton Ice Arena. 11717 Orebaugh Dr., Wheaton (back left parking lot).
- Saturday, June 11. Noon-2 p.m. Montgomery College. 850 Hungerford Dr., Rockville. (Parking Lot 13).
Electric scooters can help bridge the “first-mile/last-mile” gap of public transportation to provide the flexibility to easily get to and from a user’s ultimate destination. Currently, Bird, Lime and Spin participate in the County’s Dockless Vehicle Pilot Program.
