Electric Scooters in Nashville: A Comprehensive Guide

To locate an available scooter, download the respective company's app and use the map feature to find nearby scooters.xploring Nashville has never been more fun and eco-friendly, thanks to the recent popularity of electric scooters. While these scooters offer a convenient and enjoyable way to get around Music City, it's essential to first understand how to use them and ensure your safety and compliance with the city's regulations.


Step 1: Find a Scooter


There are several electric scooter companies operating in Nashville, such as Bird, Lime, and Lyft. To locate an available scooter, download the respective company's app and use the map feature to find nearby scooters.


Step 2: Unlock the Scooter


To unlock a scooter, open the app and scan the QR code located on the scooter's handlebars or stem. The app will prompt you through the quick process of creating an account and accepting the terms and conditions. You will also need to provide a valid credit card for billing purposes—a small deposit may be required to complete the registration.


Step 3: Safety First


Before hopping on the scooter, take a moment to inspect it for any damage or maintenance issues, including the brakes, tires, and lights. Always wear a helmet when riding, and make sure to follow traffic laws such as stopping at intersections, signaling turns, and giving pedestrians the right of way.


Step 4: Get Going


Riding an electric scooter in Nashville is simple. Kick-start the scooter and press the throttle with your thumb to accelerate. Use the handbrake to slow or stop. In most cases, the scooters have a maximum speed limit of 15mph.


Step 5: Park Responsibly


When you reach your destination or need a break, park your scooter in a designated scooter parking area, bike rack or as close to the curb as possible. Avoid blocking pedestrian walkways or driveways. Some apps may also provide location assistance for proper parking. To end your ride, open the app and follow the instructions to lock the scooter and complete the transaction.


Step 6: Know the Rules


While enjoying your electric scooter adventure in Nashville, be aware of local regulations to avoid fines:



  • Electric scooters are not permitted on sidewalks in the downtown area, but allowed on some sidewalks outside of the city center.

  • Avoid riding in parks and on greenways, and stick to streets and designated bike lanes whenever possible.

  • Riders must be 18 years or older and possess a valid driver's license.


Now that you know how to use electric scooters in Nashville safely and responsibly, it's time to embark on your Music City adventure!
