Scooter Best Practices

With the emergence of e-scooters that have filled the sidewalks. What was once known as a congested mess and is now viewed as a vital alternative transportation method. Fairfax County has recently launched an initiative to spread awareness of this new method of transportation at a low cost. The e-scooters are as simple as downloading LINKBIRD, and scanning the QR code to activate the scooter and you’re all set.

  • Ride in a bike lane when available to do so
