Hoboken welcomes e-scooter enforcement officers, launches e-scooter survey

The City of Hoboken is pleased to announce the hiring of two Micromobility Code Enforcement Officers (MCEOs). A first of its kind position in Hoboken and the tri-state area, the MCEOs will be tasked with enforcing City ordinances and regulations pertaining to micromobility devices, including e-scooters, bicycles, e-skateboards, etc. The two MCEOs are funded through a revenue share agreement with Lime which was adopted in August.

The MCEOs will educate riders, as well as provide summonses to riders who violate the City’s ordinances. The MCEOs will focus on enforcement of e-scooter violations, such as riding on sidewalks, riding in parks and prohibited areas on the waterfront walkway, not obeying traffic control devices, and more. In addition to issuing summonses, the enforcement officers will also work with Lime and the Hoboken Police Department to suspend accounts of those who disregard certain regulations. MCEOs will also partner with local organizations to lead micromobility safety and education initiatives.
