As the West heats up, the California Legislature is moving to end one of the most climate-friendly public transportation systems we have: shared bikes and scooters.
AB 371 would require providers of shared bikes and scooters (whether a private company or a transit agency) to assume liability for damage and injury caused through no fault of their own, including by the rider’s own negligence. It would apply to public, nonprofit, and private shared micromobility operators.
We need to drastically expand bike share, not hobble it with impossible requirements.
