Care of Walker at Columbus Underground, we have the City of Columbus scooter parking report, as well as this additional tidbit:

We’ll start striping and signing Gay Street spots today, and the rest will come on line in the next few weeks.
These facts from the Ride-to-Work Website make some good arguments. http://www.ridetowork.org/node/7
(For the record though, I am not convinced of their fuel savings numbers. But you get the point. Even the worst motorycle has better fuel economy than the average car or truck.)
Yes I like numbers, I don’t shy away from the geekiness. 🙂 Here are some charts for your viewing pleasure. (Sorry for the crummy quality, trying to improve it.)
