A small number of e-scooters and e-bikes are to be installed outside the Moor Lane Youth Centre on Wains Road. The location has been chosen in preference to sites initially suggested (on Grassholme and Nairn Close) which were adjacent to residential properties and were not supported by councillors or local residents. There will be space for up to five e-scooters / e-bikes.
We understand that the operator - Tier - is exploring the possibility of creating a parking area for e-scooters / e-bikes on privately-owned land outside the shops on Moorcroft Road.
There is currently one parking bay for e-scooters and e-bikes in Dringhouses & Woodthorpe ward, on Tadcaster Road outside the Holiday Inn.
York is part of a Government e-scooter trial which began last October and will last 12 months. E-scooters which are part of the trial are the only types of e-scooters that can be legally used on public roads. There is more information available on the e-scooter trial at https://tieryork.co.uk/
