BOISE — Boise City Council unanimously passed limits on dockless bike and electric scooter shares.
The Idaho Press-Tribune reports the final version of the ordinance, passed Tuesday, will allow multiple companies to operate in the city, but will cap the number of bikes, e-bikes and e-scooters brought into Boise at 750 total.
The city also proposes a $5,000 annual operator fee, an annual charge of $100 per device placed in the city plus a $20 security deposit per device. The city would use the security deposit fund to pay for moving the bikes, scooters or e-bikes to appropriate locations or removing them.
The city would charge the company $100 per bike or scooter moved. For every day the devices have to be kept in city storage beyond 30 days, companies will be charged $5.
