Local communities will not be seeing the return of Roll Scooters this summer. Last summer, the e-scooter program was introduced in communities like Lacombe and Blackfalds.
LacombeOnline has learned that Roll Technologies Inc. will not be continuing operations.
Blackfalds Town Council addressed the withdrawal of the service at their latest Town Council Meeting. CAO Myron Thompson read a letter from the company.
“As a small player in the shared scooter industry, we've been had to make a tough decision to halt our operations in Blackfalds. Despite our best efforts, we haven't been able to secure the necessary funding to continue our operations and unfortunately, we won't be able to provide our services to the community,” Thompson read in council.
The Town of Blackfalds has directed their administration to find a suitable replacement for the service with a different e-scooter service.
