How many devices are in Charlottesville?

The City has approved 250 scooters and 50 electric bikes to operate in Charlottesville (initial maximum fleet size is 350 scooters). If an operator is able to demonstrate sufficient demand for their devices and successful compliance with the regulations, they may petition the City for additional devices during the permit. Electric bikes are exempt from the fleet size cap.

Similarly, if these devices achieve less than 2 trips per device per day, the City may require the operator to reduce its fleet size.
