FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Electric scooters are coming to a Fort Collins street or sidewalk by the end of the summer, and we’ll soon know which company will provide them.

The city will interview companies interested in bringing their scooters there during the next two weeks and should pick one by late July, Fort Collins transportation planner Amanda Mansfield said. Fort Collins City Council approved a few more regulatory tweaks incorporating e-scooters into city parking and traffic codes on Tuesday.
