Share Your Thoughts on E-Scooters
As the end of the first e-scooter season approaches, the City of Regina is seeking feedback about your experience with e-scooters. This information will be used to evaluate the program and guide any required adjustments for next season.
A survey seeking input from both e-scooter users and non-users is now available until Sunday, October 22 at Regina.ca/escooters. Feedback will be considered together with data from e-scooter companies, the Regina Police Service, and the Saskatchewan Health Authority to inform a council report in early 2024.
As of April, residents were able to use their personal e-scooters in Regina. In late June, a shared e-scooter program was launched by two permitted companies, BIRD Canada and Neuron Mobility and will continue as weather permits into late October. A council report in early 2024 will also contain recommendations around the continuation of shared e-scooters next year.
Over the season, the two companies had a combined fleet of 500 e-scooters available to rent.
Data from both e-scooter companies showed there were 51,259 trips taken on e-scooters and over 130,000 km's in distance travelled throughout the months of July and August in Regina.
E-scooters are a great way to get around our city and provide an alternate mode of transportation. The City of Regina has a goal to become a renewable, net zero City by 2050 and adding e-scooters as a transportation option is one way of helping to achieve this.
