Help determine if e-scooters are right for Leduc
On Nov. 15, 2021, Leduc City Council voted to move forward with consulting residents on whether e-scooters have a future in the City of Leduc.
Results from an online survey and sentiments collected from an open house will be provided to Council for consideration to help determine if a two-year pilot program will launch in spring 2022.
Residents are asked to provide their thoughts through one or both methods:
If the pilot is approved, the City will provide the framework, which includes determining factors such as maximum speeds, zone of use, parking areas, permissible pathways and more. Bird Canada – at no cost to the City – will fund and operate the two-year e-scooter pilot program.
The City is exploring e-scooters as an added transportation option, an opportunity to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and support for increased tourism and recreation within our community.
For more information about the benefits of e-scooters and the proposed pilot program, as well as to provide your feedback, please visit www.leduc.ca/e-scooters
