To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Massachusetts Public Records Law, I hereby request the following records:

The following documents relating to the operation of electric scooter (e-scooter) sharing systems within your city:

- copies of regulations, policies, or ordinances governing the operation of e-scooters and/or e-scooter shares within city limits, on a permanent or pilot basis
- applications or requests by electronic scooter companies to operate within city limits, including all attachments, submitted between January 1st, 2017 and the date this request is fulfilled
- data sharing agreements between the city and any past or present e-scooter operators in effect between January 1, 2017 and the date this request is fulfilled
- impound lists, logs, or registers of electric scooters impounded by the city

Dockless e-scooter shares are operated by a variety of private companies, including but not limited to Bird Rides Inc., Neutron Holdings Inc. dba Lime (formerly LimeBike), Spin, Scoot, Ofo, Razor, Hopr (formerly CycleHop), USSCooter, JUMP (a subsidiary of Uber), Lyft, GOAT, and Ridecell.

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as we believe this request is in the public interest, as suggested but not stipulated by the recommendations of the Massachusetts Supervisor of Public Records. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

I expect the request to be filled in an accessible format, including for screen readers, which provide text-to-speech for persons unable to read print. Files that are not accessible to screen readers include, for example, .pdf image files as well as physical documents.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 10 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Lucas Smolcic Larson
