Bird electric scooters e-scooters

Bird launched its electric scooter program in Elkhart in mid-April. A fleet of about 50 scooters can be found throughout town, though most are in the downtown area.

ELKHART — Electric scooters are causing concerns among some city leaders, but police say there isn’t much they can do.

“I keep getting complaints about these scooters, and there’s plenty of businesses that do not like them. People that have been downtown do not like them,” said City Council Member Kevin Bullard, R-at-large, during the council meeting on Monday.
