Students with disabilities express concerns about micromobility parking habits

  • Date: 11/10/2023

Many University of Maryland students with disabilities feel the campus has become more hazardous this semester due to poor parking habits of some micromobility users.

There are currently more than 1,800 e-bikes and e-scooters registered with this university’s Department of Transportation Services. Some community members have noticed a trend of users parking micromoblity vehicles along hand railings on stairs and ramps.

The university’s Americans with Disabilities Act and 504 coordinator Emily Lucio said her biggest concern in regards to ADA on campus is scooters.

“They do pose significant challenges to people with disabilities getting around this campus,” Lucio said. “It is very frustrating to individuals with disabilities on this campus how they’re just randomly put places with no regard for anybody else.”
