Ed. Note: So out of all the scooters available which do you prefer?
Thanks to Brooke for passing on:
We’d like to give you an update on our operations in DC.
We are suspending service for at least 30 days, complying with a DDOT order after informing them of an incident that occurred earlier today in our warehouse. There was a small fire in a storage area caused by a battery that had been previously removed from service. Read More
Amazing. Thanks to a reader for sending on Saturday:
“Witnessed a girl riding a scooter in Shaw with a cat in what appears to be a purpose-built backpack.
Unclear how the cat feels about this.”
This takes me back to July 13th 2017, which was also awesome: Read More

hahaha Alex is impressed:
“Maybe they most peak DC thing I’ve seen. Scooting around, obnoxiously large umbrella balanced between the legs, truly ingenious and this man should be idolized”
Thanks to all who sent photos yesterday from the corner of Colorado and 16th Street, NW.
All I can say is ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Though I am curious about what’s in those bags…
Thanks to Stephanie Coleman for sharing this instant classic from Rhode Island Ave, NE yesterday. Following on the heels of our hero riding on top of a couple cases of beer comes this legend. I get it. Sometimes you’ve had a long day but still gotta scoot home. Respect!! Now, keep in mind these folks are professionals, please don’t try this at home.
From the files of some people are the worst.
Around 4:30pm yesterday Metro tweeted:
“Red Line Delay: Trains are single tracking between Fort Totten & Rhode Island Ave due to a track obstruction at Brookland. Expect delays in both directions.”
“the reason the red line is/was currently single tracking is because someone threw a scooter *on the tracks* near Brookland. Our very nice train driver announced it while we were at Gallery Place. We had to hold while they single tracked around it so that they could turn off the third rail to go retrieve it…”
Note the generator
Thanks to Timothy for sending:
“My first thought is it cost effective.”

I want to put the warning out that Lime scooters keeps debiting users’ credit cards for unauthorized charges.
Over the weekend, the Lime app set the “auto-reload” function to “ON” without my permission. It then debited my credit card for separate $10 and $20 transactions to add $30 of credits to my account. I complained to Lime and they said it would take 7-10 business days to refund my credit card. I ensured that auto-reload was set to “OFF” even though I know it was never turned on. Read More
Thanks to Andrei for sending from 3rd and Pennsylvania Ave, NW after yesterday’s deluge.
