Towards the end of 2019, the Municipality of Milan decided to take part in a micro-mobility national trial promoted by the Italian Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure. The installation of 130 road signs in the inner city centre is complete and shared e-scooters are available for residents and tourists to be used.
The trial period will last until July 2021 and people using their own e-scooters will need to pay specific attention and respect clear cut rules. Traffic is permitted only along specific road segments; all vehicles, e-scooters, segways, hoverboards and single wheels, can circulate in pedestrian areas as long as the speed does not exceed 6 km/h, while only scooters and segways can circulate on cycle paths and in Zone 30, limiting the speed to 20 km/h.
