“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) issued fleet expansion permits to dockless operators in the District of Columbia. With the new permits dockless operators will add up to 300 bikes and 435 scooters. As of May 1, 2019, a total of 4,935 dockless vehicles will be permitted to operate in the District.
“This fleet expansion is the next step in our incremental approach to integrating dockless vehicles in the District’s transportation network,” said DDOT Director Jeff Marootian. “With this approach, we are making progress toward Mayor Bowser’s sustainable transportation goals, while maintaining a focus on safety and equity for all Washingtonians.”
Dockless operators applied for the quarterly fleet increases as outlined in the Terms and Conditions of the permits issued in December 2018. DDOT used information submitted by the operators and data gathered by DDOT to evaluate the operators’ performance between January 1 and March 31, 2019. DDOT scored operators on compliance, data, equity, and safety.
DDOT granted the following fleet expansion permits:
Jump – 300 (bikes)
Lime – 75 (scooters)
Lyft – 120 (scooters)
Skip – 120 (scooters)
Spin – 120 (scooters)”
