(Portland, OR) -- Electric scooters are making their return to Portland. E-scooters will return to the streets today for the first time since November as part of a one-year pilot program. An announcement is scheduled today on which companies will be offering scooters under the one-year permit. E-scooters debuted on Portland streets late last year in a four-month pilot program. The new pilot program starting today will include new rules to address issues like improperly parked scooters and riding on sidewalks.
