Are Electric Scooters Legal in Plano?

Updated on December 1st, 2023

While individuals can operate e-scooters without a permit, rental companies must adhere to city regulations. E-scooter riders are allowed on roads with a speed limit of 35 mph or less. Sidewalk usage is permitted except in certain designated areas such as downtown Plano, Legacy Town Center, and Memorial Park. Although helmets are not required by the city, safety is encouraged. E-scooters must be parked properly to avoid obstructing sidewalks.

The ordinance only governs companies offering e-scooter rentals. Individuals are allowed by law to own and operate e-scooters within the city without a permit. People with a regular driver’s license or permit are allowed to ride their e-scooters on streets with a posted speed limit of 35 miles per hour or less.

State law allows adults and children over the age of 10 to ride e-scooters on sidewalks and paths, although the city of Plano prohibits their use on sidewalks in downtown Plano, Legacy Town Center and Memorial Park. The city does not require helmet use on e-scooters. It does prohibit parking e-scooters on sidewalks.,parking%20e%2Dscooters%20on%20sidewalks
