In addition to the trial extension, the Department of Transport and Planning is working on developing a guide for councils to effectively manage e-scooter share schemes.
This guide will include information on parking management and operator insurance requirements, ensuring a smooth and organised e-scooter experience for both riders and the public.
The state government is actively monitoring and assessing the use of e-scooters across Victoria.
To maintain safety standards, e-scooter riders are reminded to wear helmets, refrain from riding on footpaths, avoid carrying passengers, and adhere to the same alcohol, drug, and mobile phone restrictions as motorists.
