E-scooter pilot program wraps up for the summer

E-scooters are rolling out of Red Deer, after a very successful first summer of a three summer pilot project in Red Deer.

While The City has heard from residents informally, and via social media channels about e-scooters, we want to formally collect resident feedback about e-scooters.

The City wants to know what residents thought about e-scooters in Red Deer. A survey is available online now through November 15, which may lead to modifications for the second season and will help form the final report back to City Council after the full pilot program has wrapped. This feedback will help determine if e-scooters will remain a permanent part of our summer transportation options after the pilot program.

Residents can visit to take the short survey and ensure their thoughts and ideas are included in our research.

E-scooters are officially on Red Deer streets until October 31, and are set to return March 15, 2022 – or later, depending on when spring arrives, for the second summer pilot. Through public feedback and data collection, The City will determine whether and under what circumstances e-scooters will be permitted to continue operating after the pilot ends.
