Memphis city streets have been buzzing with the latest in "shared mobility" transportation options. Some view the ability to pick up an electric scooter on various street corners as a fun new way to get around and explore the city. Others see an antidote to a bus system that is spotty or unreliable in some areas. This week on WKNO-TV's Behind the Headlines, City of Memphis Chief Operations Officer Doug McGowen and City Councilman Kemp Conrad discuss the new Bird scooters and Memphis Bike Share with host Eric Barnes and Bill Dries, senior reporter with the Memphis Daily News.
