Expect thousands more electric scooters on Los Angeles streets as several more companies got one year permits. A total of eight companies can now operate their scooters in the city.
That's more than 36,000 scooters. Some, like Uber and Lyft, had raised privacy concerns for customers because of the requirement to share certain data with third party groups.
The LA Department of Transportation suspended that requirement and has created new restrictions to protection information. Please follow this link to the master data license and protection template. This agreement spells out the terms and conditions for data protection, access limitation, security, credentials, and more regarding third party contractors who use LADOT data.
