Atlanta's One-Year Scooter-versary: MARTA

The Last Mile Connection's Perspective

Published 5/2/19

Dockless scooters and bikes are touted as a “last mile” solution that closes the gap between a MARTA stop and a final destination. 

MARTA spokesperson Stephany Fisher said in a statement that the transit operator considers scooters “an important part of inner city connectivity,” adding “MARTA encourages the responsible use of scooters and bicycles, or simply walking to our rail stations, as a cost-effective and healthy way to get around the city.”


Data show half of all trips on scooters are less than 3 miles, and 28 percent are less than one mile.
