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.
From the beginning of the program to date (December 1, 2021) there have been over 410,000 rides on scooters, travelling over 280,000 miles and logging almost 44,000 hours of ride time.
