Chandler City Council will discuss and vote on a resolution that could bring rentable electric scooters and bicycles to Chandler. The City Council will discuss the resolution in a meeting Aug. 23 and vote during a meeting Aug. 26.

According to the agenda, the council will vote on a resolution regarding the shared mobility licensing program. The council previously approved this resolution one year ago, but the coronavirus pandemic resulted in wary companies, according to the agenda item. The program expired in December. City Council also approved an amendment to Chapter 12 of the city code that established parking and operating rules for electric scooters and shared mobility devices. The code amendment remains in effect.


The proposed licensing program requires shared mobility companies to obtain an approved license agreement with the city prior to staging and renting devices within city right of way, according to the agenda item.

The licensing program allows the city to assess fees, terminate licenses or elect to not renew licenses for any shared mobility company that is not following program rules. Revenue collections are expected to be between $10,000 and $20,000, according to the agenda item.
