What’s next for e-scooters in Portland?
January 16, 2019 at 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Since our founding, Forth has hosted monthly networking events to highlight emerging topics and provide an opportunity for electric, smart and shared mobility stakeholders to engage with other industry members. Starting this month, we’re changing our event schedule from two events per month to one monthly networking event that will rotate between Seattle, Portland and other locations along the west coast, as well as monthly webinars.
In July, The Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) issued the first permits for electric scooters in the city to Skip, Bird, and Lime. The four-month e-scooter pilot was to help PBOT determine whether shared electric scooters contribute to the City’s mobility, equity, safety, and climate action goals.
At our first networking event of the year, we will discuss the findings from the e-scooter pilot and what the future holds for e-scooters in Portland. We will be joined by guest speakers from PBOT and Bird.
Registration is $15 for members and $25 for non-members. Interested in joining Forth? Learn more here.
