Exploring Massachusetts on Electric Scooters: Top Locations and Rules to Know

Electric scooters have gained popularity as a fun and efficient way to navigate cities across the United States, and Massachusetts is no exception. Before you hop on an e-scooter and start exploring Massachusetts' beautiful cities and towns, it's important to know where electric scooters can be legally operated and the rules you'll need to follow so you can enjoy your ride without any unexpected surprises.

Places to Ride Electric Scooters in Massachusetts

Electric scooters are allowed in many locations throughout Massachusetts, but it's essential to know the specific regulations in the area you're visiting. Here are some popular places in Massachusetts where electric scooters can be ridden:

  1. City streets and bike lanes: Electric scooters are generally allowed on city streets and bike lanes in Massachusetts, except on highways and roads with posted speeds above 40 miles per hour. Keep in mind that regulations may vary by city, so it's essential to check the local city ordinance to ensure you're following the rules.

  2. Residential neighborhoods: Riding e-scooters in quiet residential areas can be an enjoyable way to travel between destinations, as they are usually permitted on such streets with low speed limits.

  3. College campuses: Several colleges and universities in Massachusetts, such as Harvard University and MIT, have designated areas where electric scooters can be used on campus. Be sure to check your specific college's rules and guidelines.

  4. Parks: Electric scooters are typically allowed on park paths and trails designated for bicycles. However, restrictions may apply in some parks or areas, so it's important to check park regulations before embarking on your scooter adventure.

Rules and Guidelines for Electric Scooter Use in Massachusetts

To enjoy a safe and legal electric scooter ride in Massachusetts, it's essential to follow state and local regulations. Here are some key rules and guidelines to adhere to:

  1. Capacity: Under Massachusetts state law, only one person can ride an electric scooter at a time, so no passengers are allowed.

  2. Helmet use: While Massachusetts law does not require e-scooter riders to wear helmets, it's a good idea to wear one for your safety, especially when navigating busy streets and intersections.

  3. Traffic laws: Just like bicycles, electric scooter riders are expected to follow the same traffic laws as drivers, such as obeying traffic signals and signs, and yielding to pedestrians.

  4. Age limit: Riders must be at least 16 years old to operate an electric scooter in Massachusetts.

  5. Parking: When parking your scooter, be sure not to block sidewalks, pedestrian walkways, or handicap ramps.
