E-Scooter Pilot

About the project
The City of Mississauga is currently studying how a shared program of publically available bicycles, pedal-assist bicycles (e-bikes) or electric scooters (e-scooters) could be used for travel in Mississauga. An e-scooter is a two-wheeled device that the rider operates while standing. E-scooters are battery operated and are equipped with a hand brake, lights, bell and kick-stand.

The City has implemented an e-scooter pilot to respond to and regulate the personally-owned e-scooters currently being operated in Mississauga. The pilot will also evaluate how e-scooters interact with other road users.

Project background
In January, 2020, the Province of Ontario launched a five-year e-scooter pilot program to evaluate whether e-scooters are suitable to be operated on roadways. The pilot allows for the operation of e-scooters, so long as municipalities opt in to the program by adopting or amending their by-laws to regulate their use.

On December 9, 2020, Mississauga City Council approved the staff recommendation to implement an interim e-scooter strategy. As part of the interim e-scooter strategy, the Parks By-law , Transit By-law, and Traffic By-law have been updated to regulate where e-scooters can be operated within Mississauga.

I live beside the Cooksville GO station and have been planning to buy an e-scooter for several months now but was afraid I'd be breaking the city's by-laws if I use it on public property. Now that this pilot program is in place, I'm very eager to finally purchase an e-scooter and participate in this pilot program. Our family has only 1 car so an e-scooter would definitely help as a substitute for a second car - especially for short trips to the grocery store, picking up take-out food or other quick errands. I think this is a great step in the right direction. I wish there was more advertising and awareness about this program as I only heard about it through a Google news flash on my phone 2 weeks after the official notice was posted. I also hope there will be adequate enforcement of and public awareness of the rules to reduce the likelihood that a few "bad apples" spoiling it for everyone.
