Electric Scooters: Pilot Schemes

Question for Department for Transport

UIN 28907, tabled on 1 July 2022

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what plans he has to extend rental e-scooter trials beyond November 2022.

Answered on

6 July 2022

The Government has decided to allow current e-scooter trials, which are live in 30 areas across England, to be extended. The existing trials will continue to run until 30 November and participating local authorities will then have the option to end their local trial or extend it to 31 May 2024. Extensions will be restricted to existing trial areas only and will allow us to gather further evidence where gaps are identified, building on the findings of the current evaluation. We hope that all areas will want to continue, but there is no compulsion.
