Electric scooters and bikes for rent coming to Overland Park as part of two-year pilot program

The company Bird will soon begin delivering electric, dockless scooters, like the ones above that you can see being rented out on streets in Kansas City, Missouri. The vehicles could arrive in Overland Park as soon as March to launch a two-year pilot program that will also eventually include electric motorized bicycles. File image.

Those electric scooters that have been a hit in downtown Kansas City in recent years will begin popping up in Overland Park by mid-April and possibly as early as March, if weather allows.

The Overland Park City Council unanimously voted their approval Monday for a two-year pilot program that will allow the scooters and, a little later, motorized bicycles to be available for short-term rentals.
