Long Island Streets has launched a campaign to insert electric scooters and e-bikes into the daily options of transportation choices on Long Island. Elected leaders are more responsive when given an opportunity to give these small transportation modes a whirl when with their constituents. We know when the opportunity to officially bring these options in comes across their plate, they’ll be more likely to bite. You know what? We barely even have to ask elected leaders and decision makers to give this a whirl - they’re asking us!!!
In the Village of Valley Stream, Deputy Mayor Vincent Grasso all but drove away with the scooter. Grasso was beaming at the potential for commuters in Valley Stream who might otherwise take their car to the LIRR or other destinations. The affordability and ease of use is a perk.
