Electric kick scooters are coming to the City’s roads, bike lanes, pathways and footbridges. Council approved piloting their use and rental in Ottawa until the end of October. The pilot will begin after contracts are in place with e-scooter sharing companies. Sharing companies will follow Ottawa Public Health guidelines to sanitize e-scooters and provide in-app education about hand washing, physical distancing and how to ride and park safely and courteously. If the pilot is a success, it can be extended for four more years.
