Residents have been invited to have their say on Camden’s involvement in the London-wide electric scooter trial which launched in parts of the Capital earlier this month.
Transport for London (TfL) has been working with London boroughs and other organisations such as the Metropolitan Police and London Councils to develop proposals for a rental e-scooter trial in London. The aim of the trial is to provide an alternative option to public transport including taxis and private cars.
Camden Council is now consulting on the borough’s involvement in the London-wide trial. This consultation would decide whether to make rental e-scooters legal for people to use in the Borough for a trial period. The consultation asks for views on how Camden should take part, including potential ‘no go’ zones for e-scooters and options on where they could be used and parked.
TfL launched the London trial scheme on 7 June 2021 with Dott, Lime and Tier being selected as service operators by TfL and London Councils for a trial of up to 12 months.
Camden are not currently part of the TfL trial but is looking at whether to join by September 2021 for the remainder of the TfL trial period, subject to the outcome of this consultation and consideration of relevant policies and other data.
