City Council approved a one-year pilot program on Tuesday that will bring e-scooters and e-bicycles Downtown.

District 5 Council member LeAnna Cumber introduced Ordinance 2020-26 on Jan. 14 to establish a permitting process and regulatory framework for dockless mobility devices.

The program sets travel boundaries for the electric scooters and bikes.

The southern and eastern boundary is the eastern edge of TIAA Bank Field along the Northbank Riverwalk. The northern boundary is Beaver Street.

The west end of the “Dockless Mobility Zone” ends at the JTA Jacksonville Regional Transportation Center, which is expected to open in late March.
