The New York City Department of Transportation has banned Revel scooters from the Queensboro Bridge, the agency confirmed Monday.
The DOT informed the scooter-sharing app that it must end its users’ short-lived access to the bridge following safety concerns.
In July, Revel permitted its riders with more than 25 miles of experience on its mopeds to use to the Queensboro Bridge and Manhattan Bridge roadways. However, Revel sent out a message to users Friday stating that riding over the bridges was once again forbidden — effective immediately — due to the DOT’s request, according to the New York Post.
