Downtown L.A. has new e-scooter drop zones. The two observed by Streetsblog are on downtown L.A.’s crowded sidewalks. The one pictured above is on Figueroa Street at 7th Street, right outside the 7th Street Metro station, and next to the MyFigueroa’s bikeway.

Ideally, L.A. could learn from Santa Monica and place some e-scooter parking in the street, so parked scooters don’t impede pedestrians. Santa Monica has sidewalk spots, too.

LADOT is billing their dockless shared e-scooter/e-bike/bike-share device program as the largest in the U.S. – see their full press statement below.
