‘Jury still is out’ on Cedar Rapids e-scooters


Cedar Rapids Gazette: When it comes to first impressions of the new electric scooters zipping around Cedar Rapids, the Kruegers are like a lot of downtown regulars — their reviews are mixed. Nicole Krueger, 35, likes them. They are a nice attraction to get people downtown, she said. Husband Jason, 42, is “not a big fan of the scooters,” although he likes the new electric-assist bikes. “They are always in the way,” Krueger said of the scooters. “They think they own the sidewalks and you have to move out of the way to avoid a collision.” The Kruegers’ differing opinions mirror those of the community at large, including elected officials, who will help decide in the coming weeks whether the scooters are brought back again next spring as part of the city’s bike share program.
