DENVER BUSINESS JOURNAL - Scooter companies are facing government backlash about the growing number of dockless vehicles that have popped up on city sidewalks. Just last week, following the arrival of Lime and Bird scooter companies, Denver Public Works ordered all scooters removed from public rights-of-way.
So San Mateo-based Neutron Holdings Inc., the company that operates on-demand bike and scooter business Lime, has hired a woman who was on the original team at Lyft Inc. to help it navigate the regulatory landscape.
Emily Warren was director of transportation policy at Lyft until December when she took a job as head of autonomous and urban mobility at the World Economic Forum. She left that job in April and starts work at Lime next week.
Warren joins Chief Programs Officer Scott Kubly, who was previously the city of Seattle's director of transportation, and strategic development chief Andrew Savage, who was a member of Lime's founding team.
