Decision:

Resolved:

 

                      i.         To expand the service area that e-scooters can be hired and used, including a phased increase in e-scooters up to 700. Introduce e-bikes as outlined in the body of the report. This would see implementation of e-bikes across the city using the same parking bays as currently used for e-scooters. The e-bikes would look to be introduced in Q1 of 2021.

 

Reason:     To continue the Department for Transport’s micro-mobility trial and develop more sustainable travel options in the city.  

Minutes:

Officers were joined by Jessica Hall from Tier Mobility to introduce the item. It was noted that the recommendation was to expand the trial to include E-Bikes and allow both E-Scooters and E-Bikes to travel as far as the outer ring road. It was confirmed that extending the range of E-Scooters and E-Bikes could be considered and that the current range of the E-Scooters and E-Bikes had been determined for part of the trial.

 

It was confirmed that E-Bikes would have number plates like the E-Scooters. Virtual parking bays were proposed to be introduced as part of the trial to reduce the impact on the public highway.
