E-scooter Parking Trial

What are your thoughts about e-scooter parking in the city?

Project Information

The City of Adelaide, Beam and Neuron have worked collaboratively to implement an e-scooter parking trial on a length of Grenfell Street - Currie Street, between Leigh Street and the eastern side of Hindmarsh Square. This location was chosen as it is a busy pedestrian area and bus corridor with waiting, boarding and alighting passengers, meaning the footpath space can become limited.

The e-scooter parking trial means e-scooter users on this length of Grenfell Street – Currie Street will need to park e-scooters within the designated areas, clearly marked by pavement decals, and end their trip via scanning the provided QR code. There are also 'no e-scooter parking' zones on adjacent and narrow side streets, to allow more space for pedestrians by minimising potential hazards or obstacles. The latter can be a particular concern for some people with disability, limited mobility, older people and people walking with children and/or prams.

The trial is being implemented to understand any concerns associated with designated parking areas and ‘no e-scooter parking’ zones. We are seeking your feedback so we can address any immediate issues, as well as to inform potential further implementations.

The e-scooter operators, Beam and Neuron, are also asking e-scooter users to complete surveys specifically about any impacts on their e-scooter use. This e-scooter user feedback will also be considered alongside the outcomes of this Council-led consultation, when deciding about potential ongoing e-scooter parking controls at this location and further implementations.

Background

The State Government has approved four e-scooter trials within South Australia, with permits to operate issued by each relevant local council. The trial period runs to the end of October 2022. The introduction of e-scooters offers people another transport option. The City of Adelaide has provided two e-scooter operators, Beam and Neuron, with a permit to trial operation of e-scooters within defined areas of the city and North Adelaide. The operators’ permits highlight the need for e-scooter parking to not cause disruption or pose a hazard to other streets users.

In April 2022, a Council motion was carried regarding concern about placement of e-scooters in busy pedestrian areas and where e-scooter parking may impact the movement and safety of people walking, where there are narrow footpath widths.
