LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Electric Scooter regulation research and planning continues in Lafayette. Back in December the city launched a pilot program to get a better handle on the scooters.

According to city leaders, all of the scooters have since left the area. The city's economic development director, Dennis Carson said the pilot program was successful in creating some rules.

Now the city is working more closely with the companies to create a clear set of laws before they return. 

"All three said that they are going to wait a couple months here before they actually deploy, so probably late winter early spring we will see them come back," said Carson.

As we previously reported, the three scooter companies interested in coming to the area are Bird, Blue Duck and Spin.
