E-scooters are coming to another N.J. town and cops will be patrolling on them

Bollwage and Lime officials will officially announce the program Wednesday afternoon at the city’s River Trail walkway and bike path off South Broad Street, anticipated to be a popular scooting spot. The Elizabeth Police Department will use two scooters painted in EPD colors for patrols.

The pilot program will run for six months, Darren Bryden, the city’s public information officer, said. Scooters will be distributed around the city based on where there is a need, and they will be rebalanced and moved every night, based on the data, Bryden said.
