Personal mobility e-devices, such as e-scooters and e-bikes, are one of the transport elements that have been identified in the current refresh of the Toowoomba Region Sustainable Transport Strategy.
From this, Council is progressing with plans that could result in a six-month trial for an e-device hire scheme by the end of the year.
We want to hear your thoughts on e-device equipment hire. We want to hear from current e-bike and e-scooter users, potential users and the general public to help us understand the community's views.
Council is very mindful of the safety required, not only for the users of these devices but also for the safety of everyone in our community as we look for the best way possible to integrate all modes of transport. Feedback from all areas of the community will help us with the scope and guidelines for a possible trial.
If a trial was to be approved by Council, the hire scheme would be provided by an external company via a user pays system.
Consultation is now open and available until 12 August 2022. Please click on the link below to add your comments.
