Mopeds Make The Cut for Pilot Phase Part Two through September 30, 2020

From DDOT:

“Today, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) announced a continuation of its demonstration pilot for shared motor-driven cycles, also known as mopeds, and released new draft terms and conditions that will govern the second phase of the pilot.

Shared motor-driven cycle operators with a 2019 Public Right-of-Way Occupancy Permit (PROW OP) are permitted to continue operations through Saturday, February 29, 2020 under the current permits. The second phase of the motor driven cycle pilot, which will be governed by revised terms and conditions, will begin on March 1, 2020 and continue through September 30, 2020.

Under the new draft terms and conditions:

companies can operate up to 600 vehicles in the District;
additional safety and equity requirements are established for the pilot’s second phase;
riders cannot park on roads with rush hour restrictions or in bus lanes; and
moped companies must distribute their vehicles throughout the entire District, in all eight wards, at all times.

These new requirements are in addition to existing District law requiring moped riders to wear helmets, possess a valid driver’s license, and avoid riding on sidewalks.

The draft terms and conditions are available here and will be available for public comment for 10 business days, through January 29, 2020. Residents are required to submit their comments in writing by email to [email protected] or by mail to 55 M Street SE Washington, DC 20003. DDOT will post the final terms and conditions on the DDOT website (ddot.dc.gov) after all public comments are reviewed.”
