Date / Time
October 13, 2022
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Bike share began in Chicago back in the summer of 2013, and in 2019, the city launched a pilot program for e-scooters. A lot has happened to grow micromobility in metropolitan Chicago and across the nation in the years since.
In the past decade, the Chicago Department of Transportation has worked to expand mobility options for all residents. Learn more about Chicago’s new program to distribute 5,000 free bikes to residents and explore the results of the first five months of the city’s permanent scooter share program. On Thursday Oct. 13, the UTC will host “Free Bikes and Shared Scooters: Expanding Mobility for Chicagoans,” the second Fall 2022 Seminar Series virtual presentation.
Our featured speakers are Mary Nicol, director of policy for the Chicago Department of Transportation, and Mark Bennett and Jake Vissers, planners with the Sam Schwartz company.
