The City Council unanimously approved a six-month pilot program on Thursday that places regulations on dockless vehicles.
As more and more e-scooters hit the streets of San Antonio, the City Council agreed to take its time evaluating their impact with a six-month pilot program.
City Council members servings on the city’s Transportation Committee on Monday got a first look at regulations for electric scooters.
