An e-scooter


About this project

The City is collecting feedback from residents and businesses on how e-scooters could be used in London.

The Province of Ontario has launched a five-year e-scooter pilot program (from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2024) to evaluate the use of both personal and shared e-scooters and determine whether existing provincial rules of the road are adequate.

As part of the pilot, Ontario municipalities can determine if and how e-scooters can be used in their community. In addition to deciding where e-scooters can be used, municipalities must also define where the scooters can be parked.

The City of London is also collecting feedback on how a potential e-scooter share program could be used in London. An e-scooter share system is a service where e-scooters are made available for the public to use as short-term rentals. E-scooters are generally rented through a mobile app, although some system operators have provisions for those without mobile data access.


What is an e-scooter?

An e-scooter is a stand-up scooter powered by an electric motor. They are generally designed for use by adults with a large deck in the centre which the rider stands on. E-scooters along with bike share and e-bikes are becoming more popular in many North American cities.
