Some Queens City Council Members say no to e-bikes in parks 

Eastern Queens Council Member Vickie Paladino (R-Whitestone) recently introduced legislation to ban the use of electric powered bikes and scooters across city parks. 

The move comes amid a NYC Parks Electric Micromobility Pilot program currently underway that temporarily allows the use of e-bikes and e-scooters to use park drives and greenways. The program went into effect on June 20, 2023 and will conclude at the end of May.
