E-scooter trial

We have an exciting new mode of active and sustainable transport in Yarra. 

Yarra City Council has signed up to the Victorian Government electronic scooter (e-scooter) trial in partnership with City of Melbourne and City of Port Phillip. The City of Ballarat is also participating in the trial.

500 boldly-branded e-scooters have been distributed across the City of Yarra for use on bicycle lanes, bicycle paths, shared paths and roads.

E-scooters are an accessible, eco-friendly and cost-effective way to travel. E-scooters can be ridden within the boundary of the metro local government areas and will be contained by geofencing.
