Electric scooters (e-scooters) became legal in New York City in November 2020. E-scooters have handlebars and a floorboard or seat and may be powered by electric and/or human power. New Yorkers must be 16 years or older to ride an e-scooter and riders under the age of 18 must wear a helmet, though riders of all ages are encouraged to wear a helmet. The citywide speed limit for e-scooters is 15 MPH. E-scooters should be operated and treated in the same way as bicycles. Riders may not ride on the sidewalk and may ride in bike lanes and on streets with speed limits no greater than 30 MPH. For more information, check out the rules of the road (PDF).
