As students return to school, many young people use e-scooters to get around in Mississauga.

E-scooters aren’t new but recently they have become a more familiar sight on city roads.

This spring, a rider in the middle of a busy Mississauga street prompted questions about the rules.

In spring 2021, the City of Mississauga set out rules for e-scooters.

They are allowed on roads with a posted speed limit of up to 50 km/h. The default speed on City of Mississauga streets is 50 km/h unless otherwise posted.

Riders must be 16 years old or older and the maximum speed is 24 km/h. They are allowed on multi-use trails and bike lanes.

They are not permitted on sidewalks or park trails. They must be parked upright and placed near a bike rack.

And this week, the City of Mississauga issued a reminder on the rules for e-scooters on buses.

Riders need to dismount at terminals and stations.

E-scooters are allowed on the bus if there is space but they can’t block seats or the aisle.

Unfortunately, e-scooters aren’t allowed on the bus bike rack, the city said.

For more information on the rules for e-scooters and e-bikes, see the City of Mississauga page here.
