ZIP dockless electric scooters will soon be making the rounds in Kelowna, B.C.

The Kitchener-based company recently received an operating permit from that city.

"ZIP is excited to work with city officials and the residents of Kelowna to bring an exciting micro-mobility solution to fruition," ZIP Dockless Inc. Founder, Luke Mydlarz said in a release.

"Kelowna's new bikeshare permit program helps companies work with us to offer new services that enhance travel options across the city. We're excited that homegrown Canadian companies, like ZIP, are among the new options for residents and visitors to get around." added Matt Worona, Active Transportation Coordinator with the City of Kelowna.

In May, ZIP announced it had signed an agreement with the University of Windsor Students' Alliance, with the goal to bring their scooters to campus once the current road regulations in the province are amended.
