E-scooters rolling for Wellington

From Morning Report, 7:46 am on 15 February 2019

E-scooters are coming to Wellington, after the council's strategy committee voted yesterday to introduce a six month trial. Two e-scooter companies will be selected from the eight who have approached the council, and six hundred to eight hundred e-scooters could be on the streets as soon as next month. At the meeting Councillor Bryan Dawson called for central government to provide more direction on how to regulate e-scooters. Guyon Espiner talks to Chris Calvi-Freeman - the council's portfolio leader for transport strategy.
