Beachside boardwalks are the ideal venue for riding e-scooters. City streets, not so much.

Pittsburg city commissioners will vote Thursday on whether to permit the electric scooter company VeoRide to distribute 20-30 scooters about town.

Patrons would be able to rent the e-scooters for $1 per 15 minutes via their smartphones.

Most people view the motorized vehicles as recreational, though manufacturers tout them as an efficient means of transportation.
