The City of Orlando just approved new restrictions for micro-mobility vehicles in downtown Orlando.

City Council approved to cap the speeds of scooters in city limits to 10 mph instead of the original 15 mph as well as an increase of 5 cents more per ride (it was 25 cents per ride and will be increased to 30 cents) as they move to adopt the Pilot Program for Scooter Share Services as a permanent policy.

The fees collected per ride are flagged to pay for infrastructure improvements to support the scooter program and has collected $269,000 so far, according to the City of Orlando.

Currently there are five approved scooter companies operating in the City of Orlando and those will be widdled down to three by this December.
