Mr Hoeft said it would cost $1 upfront then 30c a minute to ride a Wave, on a par with Lime's pricing.

Though, the reason why e-scooters are illegal throughout the city is partially because of the concern of potholes on roads in the five boroughs.

Following a four-week pilot program during Fringe, Lime's scooter permit has been extended for another month.

"Wave will be restricting its scooters to 15kmh on Queen St, and in the Wynyard Quarter and Viaduct Basin areas".

Auckland Transport chief executive Shane Ellison said Wave would be trialling speed limited areas.

"This is a good opportunity for us to test slower speeds in areas with lots of people walking". The e-scooters have a top speed of 25km/h.

Wave's e-scooters are licensed to operate between 5am and 1am each day.

Bojan Bogdanovic the way for the Pacers with 18 points, while Darren Collison added 14 and Doug McDermott 10. Blake Griffin's 28 points, six rebounds and five assists led the Pistons past the Bulls 131-108.

Proponents of shared e-scooters in cities argue that they are safe, reduce carbon emissions, and compel policymakers to design safer transportation infrastructure. Initially there were three participants in the trial but one company chose not to participate.

Bolt said that the scooters will provide riders with access to a safe, equitable and eco-friendly transportation alternative. Twyford has indicated he's open to tweaks.

Philadelphia has moved closer to bringing electric scooters to its streets, as supporters of the scooters and lobbyists have urged the Philadelphia City Council to roll out a plan by this summer that would allow its use in the city.

"I want Wave Scooters to be part of the solution, not part of a problem so I will let AT address the current e-scooter rider safety issues, which I am confident it will accomplish in the next three months". Auckland Council and Auckland Transport will collect usage and incident data. He was also open to some of the levy going to ACC.

Lime e-scooters were recently pulled from Auckland and Zurich streets, and to a wave of bad publicity in the U.S., after being hit by a braking issue that caused 31 injuries locally.

Wave has assured AT its scooters had no reports of brake locking, or any other known issues, Ellison said.

It will recall its fleet immediately if any malfunctions occur.
