E-Scooters Could Be Leaving Portland Soon...Do You Care?

We may soon be saying "bye bye" to those electronic scooters that we've been seeing all over town. Having them for use was a 4-month trail by the Bureau of Transportation, which started in July, so it's coming to and end.  Then the Bureau will need to decide whether to make the scooters a permanent deal around Portland.

PBOT says riders have taken more than 472,000 trips on the E-scooters, so they've been pretty popular. They took a survey of more than 4,500 riders to help them decide if they'd keep them around.  It shows over 63% use the scooters to save money on transportation, and another 27 % say they do it to help the environment.

I didn't find any stats on what people OTHER than riders think about them...like those of us driving cars or even walking.  What do you think; should we keep E-Scooters as part of the Portland landscape, or is it too Portlandia for you?
