Employees at the Roanoke Public Works Service Center try out BOLT Mobility scooters just before they were distributed throughout Roanoke on Friday. BOLT, which said it deployed about 200 scooters on Friday, is the second scooter company to have a presence in Roanoke; Lime introduced its scooters in October. Scooter features include front shocks as well as cup holders and cellphone charging slots. Free helmets are provided through the Bolt app and website, micromobility.com . The scooters cost 30 cents per minute, with no unlocking fee. “This sure brings out the kid in you,” said Tyrone Ferrell, 37, of Roanoke. “Once you get on, you can’t get off.” Rider Joe Hicks, 52, took a spill: “They are fast, faster than I thought. Tell people to be careful.” The scooters’ top speed is 15 mph on flat ground. Hicks was not the only rider who took a spill during the rainy morning demonstration for public works employees.
