Pittsburg considering citywide electric scooter rental service

News

The city of Pittsburg is considering the idea of bringing an electric scooter rental service to town.

Multiple scooter rental companies have approached the city with proposals of unveiling the new transportation in the area. The city believes this could offer a fun alternative for transportation both downtown and on the Pittsburg State campus. And at their low price point and convenience, Pittsburg believes it would push the community in the right direction.

“You could go to one en of Pittsburg to the other, in-in relatively short period of time, for very little cost. So, I think it’s something that’s going to catch on,” says Jay Byers, City Manager of Pittsburg.

Right now there is no set date on when the city plans on bringing in the scooters.
