Current Shared Active Transportation Program - June 13, 2019 - present
On February 3, 2020, the City of Durham approved an ordinance and fees for shared active transportation. This new ordinance modified the previous Shared Active Transportation Systems (SATS) ordinance approved in October 2018. As part of the ordinance revision process, City staff reviewed feedback from over a thousand residents, from existing scooter permittees, and several stakeholder organizations, to develop the adopted revisions to the SATS Ordinance and program.
One year after the start of the scooter program in June of 2019, there have been over 225,000 trips taken in the city, between four different operators.
