E-scooter Data Streams for 2020 Now Available

As part of the 2020 E-scooter pilot, we have updated our links to real-time locations of scooters available for rent in Chicago.

The data are accessible by API, and each of the three scooter companies hosts its own API feed as a requirement of participation. Details on the data specification can be found here. Updated URLs for GBFS feeds should be available soon on GitHub and are also listed below.
