I rode electric scooters from Bird, Uber, Lyft, and Lime. Lyft was by far my favorite brand, but there were 2 I’d never ride again.

Zooming through the wide, sunny streets of Los Angeles, warm wind gently ruffling my light sweater — what could be a more idyllic alternative to lurching through the bowels of New York City in a screechy, rickety subway car packed with irritable commuters?

When I visited LA, I couldn’t wait to ride e-scooters for the first time. I was abroad in 2018, during the First Great Migration of e-scooters into the cities of America. Then, I moved to New York, which has refused to allow e-scooters to swarm its already-chaotic streets.
