Nottingham Scooter Scheme Extended Again

Nottingham’s trial e-scooter rental scheme has been extended until the end of November next year, in line with dozens of other trials taking place across the country.
The Department for Transport has invited local areas to extend trials to give more time to gather data and evaluate schemes, introduce new and improved safety measures and improve public perception of e-scooters.
The trial will be extended in its current form, operated by Wind Mobility, but with a series of key improvements implemented to address issues that have arisen from the trial:

• Recruitment of a locally based Public Engagement Officer to provide increased e-scooter information for users and non-users through online content and in person events
• Improved App, development of training resources and education through safety events
• Stronger enforcement, fines for poor parking and measures to tackle illegal pavement riding
• Piloting docking stations at busy locations
• Improved e-scooter number plates
• A locally based customer service contact.

Since their introduction in October 2020, the e-scooters have been ridden more than 850,000 times, with over 35,000 registered users and over 1.3 million miles travelled. On average, the e-scooters are used for 3,000 journeys per day by more than 2,000 people, making Nottingham’s trial one of the most popular in the country.

Early findings show the e-scooters are being used across the city, between residential areas and in areas not served as well by public transport. Many citizens are now using the e-scooters for their daily commute, to travel to bus stops, and as an alternative to the car.

Nottingham City Council, in partnership with Derby City Council, is one of 30 areas currently taking part in the Government-funded trials, which aim to test the potential of e-scooters to provide convenient, sustainable and affordable travel, reducing shorter car journeys and harmful emissions.
