UK fast tracks e-scooter trial

Source Cycling Industry News – The UK government has changed the timetable for the forthcoming e-scooter trials – now to take place next month instead of next year.

The move could lead to rental e-scooters on UK roads as early as June, according to the government, which announced the move with its big £2 billion for cycling and walking declaration, made as the nation grapples with getting back on the move as the Covid-19 lockdown gradually eases.

Originally set to take place in four ‘Future Transport Zones’ (Portsmouth and Southampton; West of England Combined Authority; and Derby and Nottingham), the trial of rental e-scooters will now be offered out to all local areas across the country, with the aim of allowing the government to assess their benefits as well as their impact on public space.
