Electric scooters (e-scooters)
Riding an e-scooter on a public road or path in Kent is illegal, and this is enforced by Kent Police.
However, in partnership with the Department for Transport, we are facilitating an e-scooter rental trial to learn how e-scooters can contribute to future sustainable transport strategies.
E-scooter trials in Canterbury
We want to encourage sustainable local travel, and lessen the impact of reduced public transport capacity since the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
With safety in mind we started small, with a few scooters and a small operating area. But we're expanding in phases to cover more of Canterbury and collect more data, still with safety in mind.
