Department for Transport E-Scooter trials

As part of the official Department for Transport’s (DfT) authorised e-scooter trials, South Somerset District Council in partnership with leading British micro-mobility operator Zwings, have launched three fleets of rental electric scooters in Yeovil, Chard and Crewkerne. The scheme provides a sustainable, convenient and covid-safe-socially-distant mode of travel to the community and visitors alike. We must stress, that while the trial is underway, privately owned e-scooters are still illegal on public roads. These trials run from October 2020 until October 2021.

We look forward to you trialling the e-scooters, and please remember to feed back to the DfT on how they are being used in communities so they can decide after the trials whether e-scooters will be made a legal form of private sustainable transport.
