  • Tuesday from 1 to 7 p.m. at the CU Boulder Bike Fest at Farrand Field.
  • Sept. 16 from 4 to 6 p.m. next to the Dushanbe Teahouse at 1770 13th St.

Boulder’s Transportation Committee, comprised of representatives from the chamber, the city and CU, is exploring whether e-scooters can help the city achieve certain goals established in the 2019 Transportation Master Plan.
