ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A Boston-based company says it will roll out its Albuquerque e-scooter fleet next week.
Zagster — which already operates a bike-sharing program in the city — will have 250 e-scooters available for rent around Albuquerque next Friday, with “an aggressive expansion plan within 30 days,” according to a spokesman.
Rentals will cost $1, plus 15 cents per minute.
The city has so far authorized 29 drop zones for the scooters around the city.
The company was the first to apply for an e-scooter operator permit since the city released new rules governing “shared active transportation” providers.
The city has said it is conducting a one-year pilot program to gauge the impact of such vehicles and limiting the total number of permitted e-scooters to 750 in that period.
