Electric Scooters in Austin: Where Are They Banned?

With the rise in popularity of electric scooters in recent years, many cities have implemented rules and regulations for their use. In Austin, Texas, the city has taken steps to ensure the safety of both riders and pedestrians by enacting scooter-friendly laws while also setting boundaries on where these scooters can operate. Here, we'll break down where electric scooters are not allowed in the city of Austin.

  1. Sidewalks and Pedestrian Areas: For the safety of pedestrians, the city of Austin has banned the use of electric scooters on sidewalks in certain areas, mainly around the downtown area. However, in areas where it is deemed necessary, riders can use the sidewalks but must give pedestrians the right-of-way.

  2. Parks and Natural Areas: Electric scooters are not allowed in any of Austin's natural areas. This includes popular parks such as Zilker Park, Barton Springs Pool, and the Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail. The ban is in place to maintain the natural beauty and serenity of these areas and ensure the safety of wildlife and park-goers.

  3. The University of Texas at Austin Campus: The University of Texas has also enacted a ban on all shared electric scooters throughout their Austin campus to avoid congestion and ensure the safety of students and faculty.

  1. Private Property: Electric scooters cannot be ridden on private property without the owner's permission.

Despite these bans, the city of Austin is largely supportive of electric scooter use and has designated many bike lanes and street use as scooter-friendly. If you're ever unsure about where you can ride your scooter in Austin, always err on the side of caution and be sure to follow any posted signs and local laws.
