    E-scooter Trial Extended

    At its meeting on 8th December, the City of Port Phillip (Council) agreed to extend participation in a 12-month trial by the Victorian Government. The trial was due to finish on 1 February 2023. It will now finish when the Victorian Government has completed an evaluation and there is clarity on the recommended regulatory framework.

    The purpose of the trial is to inform future regulatory frameworks that meet transport and safety objectives and ensure clarity for all stakeholders around the use of e-scooters in Victoria.

    There are restrictions on the use of E-scooters as explained earlier. The BCNA is encouraging feedback to the secretary@beaconcove.org.au which which will be passed onto Council as part of the trial. Council officers report that footpath riding, riding without a helmet and poor parking are among the most common issues raised by the community.
