E-Scooters At Virginia Tech

(Blacksburg)- Electric scooters are coming to the campus of Virginia Tech. California-based company Spin is set to drop off 300 e-scooters for use beginning September 3rd. Riders will only be able to use the vehicles during daylight hours and will be allowed on roads and sidewalks, unless there’s heavy pedestrian traffic. It’s part of an 18-month study by Tech’s Transportation Institute, where researchers will review camera footage to study the scooters’ impact.
