Are Electric Scooters Legal in Reno?

Updated on December 1st, 2023

Reno allows local authorities to set specific regulations for electric scooters, including designated areas of operation. Riders must be at least 16 years old to operate shared scooters. Scooters can be used on roadways, bicycle lanes, paths or routes at speeds up to 15 mph. If using a scooter on a sidewalk or other pedestrian area, users must observe local speed limits as established by ordinance. Parking of electric scooters is subject to restrictions and must not create an obstruction for pedestrians when parked on a sidewalk.

   Requires the ordinance prohibit a scooter-share operator or a person from allowing a person under 16 years of age to operate a shared scooter.
·         Rights for local authorities to regulate where electric scooters may be operated, and provisions for operating electric scooters on a roadway, bicycle lane, path or route at a speed of not more than 15 miles per hour; and on a sidewalk or other pedestrian areas not to exceed a speed limit established through an ordinance.
·         Provisions that prohibit parking in specific areas unless otherwise provided for through an ordinance, as well as the right to park on a sidewalk provided no impediment to normal and reasonable movement of pedestrians.
