We’ve partnered with the Cities of Port Adelaide Enfield and West Torrens to bring back the coastal e-scooter trial.
After grinding to a halt due to COVID-19, the six-month trial is back on, enabling tourists and locals to pick up an e-scooter at various locations along the coast from West Beach to Outer Harbor.
Providers Neuron Mobility and Beam will each operate up to 250 e-scooters along the foreshore with hours of operation from 6.00am to 6.00pm (up to 9.00pm during daylight savings periods), seven days per week.
Designated parking areas, where users must end their journey, and go-slow zones have been identified, with scooters automatically restricted to 10km/hr in these areas. All other areas will have a speed restriction of 15km/hr.
The trial enables tourists and locals alike to ride an e-scooter along the coastal path in the three council areas, as a fun, easy to access and environmentally friendly alternative to driving.
“The introduction of e-scooters has been successful in Adelaide with more than 140,000 trips recorded in their six-month trial,” Mayor Angela Evans said.
“With our 12kms of coastline and the warmer weather coming up, we look forward to our residents and visitors connecting with our neighbouring councils and each other on the e-scooters.”
In the current climate, e-scooters provide a clean, safe and efficient personal transport option for locals and tourists alike. With the restrictions on travel easing, they are the perfect way to get out and explore Adelaide’s coastal areas.
The scooters feature a range of cutting-edge anti-viral measures introduced to keep them clean and to safeguard riders. Despite the reduced COVID-19 risks in South Australia, both scooter providers have teams on hand ensure the safety of riders and staff.
