Podcast: E-Scooter Surprises & the Rise in Micro-Mobility in Major Cities

Chaddick Institute at DePaul University

Our podcast team welcomes LeAaron Foley, Senior Director of Government Relations at Lime, to the studio to discuss the latest happenings with e-scooters, e-bikes, and other “micro-mobility” options. Host Joe Schwieterman, a DePaul University professor, and LeAaron explore the recent shift toward longer-distance trips, new technology to limit e-scooter speed for novices, growth in lower-income neighborhoods, and trends in governmental policymaking. You’ll be surprised at the pace of activity in the micro-mobility sector in Chicago, London, and other major cities.  Duration:  34 minutes. Free  Click here, or listen on SoundCloud or Spotify.
