    “Denver traffic is among the worst in the U.S.”

    It’s not. It’s really not.

    correction: 58,000 is the number of E-bike trips, not scooter trips; if the figure were for scooters, the average trip would have been 17 miles long! in reality, the average scooter trip was just over a mile; here are the scooter trip figures directly from the city report:

    Total Number of Rides: 819,927
    Total Miles Traveled: 952,898

    but note that the city botched the calculation of average trip length on page 4 of the report:
