Organization: City of Ottawa
Project Start Date: October, 2020
Ottawa could soon see electric kick scooters on the City’s roads, bike lanes, pathways and footbridges. The City Council approved piloting the use and rental of e-scooters in Ottawa until the end of October 2020. If the pilot is a success, it could be extended for four more years.
The pilot would begin after contracts are in place and consultation with Ottawa Public Health. E-scooter sharing companies, working with the City through a contract, would follow Ottawa Public Health guidelines for scooter sanitization and provide in-app education about hand washing and physical distancing. E-scooters would not be allowed on sidewalks, OC Transpo facilities and vehicles, National Capital Commission pathways or in Gatineau.
