Scooters in Saint Paul

In August 2018, Saint Paul added scooters as a new way for residents and visitors to explore the city and get to their final destination. Riders can begin their ride anywhere in the city where a scooter is available. When the rider reaches their designation, they safely place the scooter in the public right of way, or boulevard (the city-owned property between the street curb and sidewalk). Scooters are operated with smartphone apps in which riders set up individual accounts with third-party vendors to find, unlock, and rent a scooter.

Here are some quick tips about using electric scooters:

  • Scooters are motorized, and must follow the rules of the road.
  • Scooters are ONLY permitted on city streets, bike lanes, and bike trails. 
  • Scooters should NEVER be used on the sidewalks, except when briefly entering or exiting a scooter from the parked position on the public right of way or boulevard.
  • Scooters should be parked off street in the public right-of-way, but should NOT block sidewalks and paths.
