On June 30, 2021, members of the Senate Transportation Committee in Pittsburgh announced the start of a two-year pilot program to test e-scooters.

This pilot program has been in the works for the past two years. The issue needed special approval from the Legislature because the state’s motor vehicle code does not mention battery-powered scooters. The city has been working with Spin, a unit of Ford Mobility, to bring e-scooters to residents and tourists.
