The city and the e-scooter companies have been working very hard to find a solution to the e-scooter problem, and in response to public demand, they have placed escooter docking stations all over the city for your convenience. When you see an e-scooter on the sidewalk, calmly walk up to it, pick it up, and place it on the nearest docking station, also known as a ‘scootypods’ (they’re still focus grouping that title).

You have to fight your instincts on this one. We know it feels natural to throw e-scooters into a body of water instead of stepping over them on the sidewalk, but you mustn’t act on those impulses. Instead, we recommend a creative outlet, you can make scooter art!

We are no longer throwing e-scooters into the Bay!
That’s right. Foreign objects containing large batteries do not belong in our waterways. DO NOT throw your e-scooter into the bay…again. To help citizens remember what to do when they’ve finished using their escooters, they’ve released a PSA with a catchy acronym:
When you’re done riding an escooter, always remember to D.U.M.P
Understand that you are part of the problem
Mobilize your legs
Place escooter in the trash
Other interesting things citizens are doing with escooter that we do not recommend
