Uber will challenge L.A.’s suspension of its permit to rent out scooters and bikes

Setting the stage for a possible legal showdown, Uber has appealed Los Angeles’s decision to suspend its permit to rent out electric scooters and bikes.

Uber’s subsidiary, Jump, filed a request Friday for a hearing that will determine whether the company will be forced to remove its red scooters and electric bikes from L.A.’s streets and sidewalks.

Jump bikes and scooters will be available for rent until the hearing concludes. The hearing date has not been scheduled.
