Safety first

ALWAYS be considerate of others and be safe 

  • Pedestrians ALWAYS come first! Slow down, use your bell, and give way to pedestrians.
  • NEVER use your mobile while scooting.
  • Park properly. Park the scooter upright with the kickstand down, out of the way of pedestrians.

NO Passengers EVER

No matter how excited you may be to get scootin’, remember regulations say no passengers! There are enough scooters to go around, you and your mates can have one each! Remember you must ride in single file.

Don’t drink and scoot

We know we can’t “drink and drive,” so why would we think we could “sip and scoot!!” E-scooters are subject to the same 0.05 blood alcohol content limits and zero drug limits that apply when driving a car. 

Designated roads, paths and locations

E-scooters are only permitted to travel on bicycle lanes, shared paths, and only in participating locations – download the map of the e-scooter trial zones in Western Sydney Parklands here

Private E-Scooters Not Allowed

If you have your own e-scooter, remember you can only scoot it on private property as they are not permitted on public roads or pathways. To avoid a fine of $686-$5500, stick to the shared e-scooters from Beam, Lime, Neuron and Bird.

<20km/hr speed

Slow down there!! The maximum speed is 20 km/h, with 10km/h on shared paths. 

Must be 16+

Everyone wants to enjoy the fun, but you must be at least 16 years of age before you can e-scoot. 

For more information about the e-scooter trial and rules go to Rules for riding in Western Sydney Parklands, the TfNSW website or you can contact TfNSW.
