As a community we are embracing e-scooters as a fun and convenient way to get around town.
Since the shared e-scooter scheme commenced in September 2020 we have seen a strong uptake of both Neuron and Beam e-scooters.
Whether you are riding a shared e-scooter, or your own, it’s important to know the rules and be a considerate rider. It will keep yourself and others safe.
Next time you decide to scoot remember to:
Wear a helmet –don’t risk ending up in a hospital bed!
Park responsibly – this will keep our city nice as well as making it convenient for the next user. Park your e-scooter off the main path and away from stairs, ramps, light rail stops, bus stops and entry or exit ways.
Give way – ring your bell when approaching pedestrians and overtake on the right. Travel at the appropriate and safe speed for the environment you are travelling in and be respectful to pedestrians and other path users.
Ride responsibly – just as if you were driving a car or riding a motorcycle, road rules apply when riding an e-scooter so be aware and take responsibility!
