According to the Cedar Rapids Gazette, "Starting on Friday, the bike-share program in downtown Cedar Rapids will be adding electric scooters."

These scooters will be available for citizens to rent and cruise around town. I love this idea and can't wait to take my first ride!

There will be a total of 30 new scooters that will be placed in downtown as well as NewBo and the Czech Village. To rent the scooters, just download the mobile app for free at this link.

The price will be the same as the bikes. One dollar to unlock and just $0.15 cents per minute. If ask me, that's a pretty good deal to be able to ride around the city on a fun scooter. I'm planning to take my cat Squeaks and let him ride on the handlebars. He loves scooters and I even bought him his own little helmet.

Just make sure you aren't drinking before you take a scooter. We don't want anybody getting arrested or injured.

Be safe out there, and watch out for my cat!
