Today is the day that the rental Electric Scooter trials start on UK soil. It's what we have all been waiting for, a step in the right direction and a positive move for electric mobility users and the UK electric scooter industry.
The UK Government have been working on making this work since the world was struck with COVID-19 and they fast tracked rental electric scooter trials. This is the start, and it's great news for the environment, electric scooter users and it's a much cleaner, more hygienic commuting solution. We would rather scoot around London than get on the tube!
From today, rental electric scooters are allowed on UK roads and cycle lanes. The trials are for rental electric scooter schemes only and personal e-scooters are still not allowed to be used.
This is a huge step in the right direction and we can't wait to see what the future holds for personal electric transport solutions!
