A pilot program for e-scooters in Jerusalem will give commuters a new way to get places faster reports the Jerusalem Post:

The pilot will attempt to provide a solution for residents and visitors in the Jerusalem area suffering from the city’s massive traffic jams, helping them move more efficiently and quickly.

Under the new plan, the cooperative e-scooter companies Bird, Lime and Wind would each deploy 20 scooters in a designated area on Har Hotzvim for public use. Each company will set up users for proper and safe riding while maintaining public order, following traffic laws and municipal regulations.
