AN ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to making tech-

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. Paragraph (a) of subdivision 8 of section 1282 of the vehi-
cle and traffic law, as added by a chapter of the laws of 2019, amending
the vehicle and traffic law relating to bicycles  with  electric  assist
and electric scooters, as proposed in legislative bills numbers S.5294-A
and A.7431-B, is amended to read as follows:
  (a) The governing body of any city, town or village may, by local law,
ordinance,  order,  rule  or  regulation,  authorize and regulate shared
electric scooter systems within such city,  town  or  village.  No  such
shared  systems  shall  operate within a city, town or village except as
authorized by such local law, ordinance, order, rule or regulation.   No
such  shared electric scooter system shall operate on public highways in
a county with a population of no less  than  one  million  five  hundred
[eighty-six]  EIGHTY-FIVE  thousand  and  no  more than one million five
hundred eighty-seven thousand as  of  the  two  thousand  ten  decennial
census.   For the purposes of this subdivision, the term shared electric
scooter system shall mean a network of self-service and publicly  avail-
able electric scooters, and related infrastructure, in which an electric
scooter trip begins and/or ends on any public highway.
  §  2.  This  act  shall  take  effect on the same date and in the same
manner as section 6 of a chapter of the laws of 2019, amending the vehi-
cle and traffic law relating to bicycles with electric assist and  elec-
tric  scooters,  as  proposed  in legislative bills numbers S.5294-A and
A.7431-B, takes effect.
