MIAMI (WSVN) - Electric scooters will be making a comeback to downtown Miami.

City of Miami officials held a meeting Monday to discuss a new temporary program.

They reversed an earlier decision and will bring back the scooters on a temporary basis through the beginning of 2022.

It’ll come with new rules like the use of helmets, speed controls, docking stations and stiffer penalties for rule-breakers.

All this comes less than two weeks after a decision to end a three-year program allowing several companies to place electric scooters in different parts of the city.
