Arlington has now created seven “scooter corrals” around the county, in a bid to make the storage of the pervasive dockless electric vehicles a bit more orderly.
County workers set up the new storage spaces over the course of the last week, generally using some spray paint to cordon off specific areas for the scooters.
Officials have been considering such a step dating back to this fall, when the scooters first started popping up around Arlington and concerns about where the vehicles might be scattered began cropping up. Other cities, from Austin to Santa Monica, have adopted a similar technique.
The corrals are mostly clustered around Metro stops, as that’s where many riders first pick up the scooters. Per the county website, locations include:
N. Stuart Street & 9th Street N.
Clarendon Blvd & N. Uhle Street
18th Street S. & S. Bell Street
S. Hayes Street & 12th Street S.
N. Lynn Street & Fairfax Drive
N. Lynn Street & 19th Street N.
N. Monroe St & 9th Street N.
George Mason University has set up a similar “corral” near its Virginia Square campus, after briefly trying to establish a “no scooter zone” in the area (drawing fierce criticism from students and staff alike).
