Are Electric Scooters Legal in St. Louis?

Updated on December 1st, 2023

In St. Louis, electric scooters are legally permitted to travel on the street, and they must follow the same traffic regulations as other vehicles. The city emphasizes safety, thus wearing a helmet is mandatory for all e-scooter riders. Electric scooters must avoid sidewalks and should be used primarily in designated bike lanes or on streets. Proper parking etiquette requires scooters to be left out of the main pedestrian pathway and preferably at bike racks, without causing any obstructions. The intent is to ensure the public right-of-way remains accessible for pedestrians and individuals with disabilities.

The e-scooters can go up to 15 mph.
In the City of St. Louis, users of e-scooters are required to wear a helmet. Users are not allowed to ride them on sidewalks - stick to bike lanes and streets.
Bikes/e-scooters should be parked outside of the main sidewalk pavement (e.g. the strip of sidewalk between the walking area and the street where you may see parking meters, signs, and trees), and/or when possible at a public bike racks. Bikes/e-scooters should be parked to not obstruct doorways, driveways, cars, or people using mobility devices. Bikes/e-scooters can be locked by pushing the metal bar back through the spokes of the back wheel.
For e-scooters, people are required to wear a helmet.
