How fast are people allowed to go on the bikes/scooters?

The bikes are Class I electric pedal-assist bikes, meaning they provide assisted power up to 20 MPH. At 20 MPH, the motor disengages and any additional power must be generated by the person riding. People on bikes must abide by all posted speed limits.

Scooters are limited to 15 MPH (CVC 22411).

All bikes and scooters will be equipped with GPS and geofencing technology, meaning the operator can designate areas (at the City’s direction) where speeds are further restricted or riding with electric motor assistance is prohibited. For example, the City may direct the operator prohibit electric motors from providing assistance within Old Courthouse Square.
