Are Electric Scooters Legal in Durango?

Updated on December 1st, 2023

While Class I pedal-assist and Class II throttle-assist e-bikes continue to have access to City of Durango hard surface trails, the use of electric scooters is regulated with more restrictions. Electric scooters are allowed on city streets and bike lanes, provided they follow the same traffic regulations as bicycles. However, their use is prohibited on certain city trails where signs specifically forbid motorized vehicles, including scooters. It’s important to check the latest local ordinances and signage for any updates or changes to these regulations.

Class I pedal-assist and Class II throttle-assist E-bikes are currently allowed on City of Durango hard surface trails, connecting you to Durango parks, neighborhoods and business areas. These trails include the Animas River Trail, Florida Road Trail, SMART 160 Trail, Three Springs Trail and Goeglein Gulch Road Trail. E-bikes may be ridden on City streets and bike lanes at any time. 

Max Speed

20 MPH on public streets and trails for both e-bikes and electric scooters, in alignment with Colorado state laws regarding the operation of electric mobility devices.

Minimum Age

16 years old to operate an electric scooter without adult supervision. Riders under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Helmets Required? 

Yes, for riders under 18 years of age. While it is not a legal requirement for adults over 18, the use of helmets is strongly recommended for all riders for safety purposes.
