    "City of Alexandria to Host Demonstration of Dockless Mobility Devices In Consideration of Pilot Program

    "For Immediate Release: October 3, 2018

    "The City of Alexandria will host an open house and demonstration of dockless mobility devices on Saturday, October 6, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Judy Lowe Neighborhood Park (7 E. Del Ray Ave.). Dockless mobility devices include shared, rechargeable transportation devices, such as e-bikes and scooters, that are available for rent from private companies. The open house will give participants the opportunity to take demonstration rides on new dockless mobility devices in the region, speak with representatives from the rental companies, and provide input to City staff on a potential pilot program to manage the entry of such devices into the Alexandria market.

    "The City is also seeking community input through an online survey to gauge interest and assess questions and concerns about the potential for a dockless pilot program.

    "City staff will prepare a recommendation for consideration by City Council this fall, which will incorporate public feedback and the results, to date, of similar pilot programs in the District of Columbia, Montgomery County, and Arlington County. Dockless mobility devices are not currently permitted to be left on public property in Alexandria by rental companies or customers, and City Council has not yet made any decisions about whether to change how these devices are regulated on a pilot basis or beyond.

    "To learn more about dockless mobility or the potential pilot program, or to complete the online survey, visit the City’s Dockless Mobility page."

    Even if you’re not an Alexandrian please consider going to this if you’d like to see scooters and dockless bikes available in the region. Alexandria’s city leaders need to see and hear the good side of non-car mobility to balance out all the complaints that are sure to be made.
