A year after scooters first hit Baltimore's streets, safety and equity concerns persist

EOn Baltimore streets for over a year, dockless scooters are no longer a novelty. And, with the city recently awarding permanent licenses to four vendors, they, along with dockless bikes now coming online, will be part of its transportation mix for the foreseeable future.

They’re joined by Sun transportation reporter Colin Campbell.
