The council feels it will help essential workers making deliveries during the pandemic.

NEW YORK (WABC) -- The New York City Council is set to approve legislation legalizing electric bikes and scooters.

The three bills would require the Department of Transportation to set up a Citi Bike-style e-scooter share pilot program outside Manhattan.

E-bikes will only be allowed to travel up to 25 miles per hour.

Lawmakers say the move will help essential delivery workers who worked throughout the city during the pandemic.
