Ben Everitt, the MP for Milton Keynes North, has met with micromobility company Ginger to discuss the progress of their e-scooter trials in Milton Keynes.
After some constituents raised concerns with their local MP over the parking of e-scooters on MK's streets Ben was keen to meet with Ginger who are trialling the use of specific parking bays.
This means Ginger scooters can only be parked in certain areas such as at Milton Keynes Central train station where Ben met CEO Paul Hodgins, along with MK South MP Iain Stewart.
He commented: "The trials of e-scooters here in Milton Keynes are really exciting and I'm delighted to have been able to meet all three operators; Lime, Spin and Ginger, over the last few months to hear about the successes.
"We are currently in a trial stage so it was important for me to raise some of my constituents concerns over parking and to see how the different operators work.
"I was also really encouraged to hear how Ginger deal with the misuse of e-scooters to ensure they are as safe as possible.
"The future is exciting for Milton Keynes, with e-scooters, delivery robots and so much more I truly believe MK can become the Silicon Valley of Europe."
