The initial phase of the e-scooter project is up and running in 10 locations across Dubai. This project allows private sector companies to operate and rent electric scooters (e-scooters) for the public to use. Four operators are approved to manage the e-scooter rental business in Dubai, two of them are international: Tier and Lime and the other two are local: Arnab and Skurrt. RTA continuously runs awareness campaigns and inspections on the four RTA-approved operators of e-scooters. These awareness campaigns and inspections have significantly contributed to the delivery of safe, smooth and enjoyable services to users from all spectrums of the community.
The initial phase, for e-scooter rental covers 10 locations including: Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard, Jumeirah Lakes Towers, Dubai Internet City, Al Rigga, 2nd of December Street, and City Walk. It also covers The Palm Jumeirah, Al Qusais (On safe streets 30 km/h), Al Mankhool, and Al Karama communities as well as dedicated cycle tracks, which can be seen in the locations map.
Additionally, e-scooter operations are now in 11 new residential areas which are: Al Tawar 1, Al Tawar 2, Umm Suqeim 3, Al Garhoud, Muhaisnah 3, Umm Hurair 1, Al Safa 2, Al Barsha South 2, Al Barsha 3, Al Quoz 4, and Nad Al Sheba 1. By operating e-scooters in these areas, the total length of the bike and e-scooter tracks jumped to 390 km to serve 114,503 residents of those areas. These tracks relate to main attractions, 10 mass transport stations, and 18 prominent destinations such as public parks and commercial outlets. This enhances the first and last-mile journeys and reduces the reliance on private vehicles. The public must refrain from using e-scooters on tracks that are still under construction to avoid traffic incidents. The construction of tracks at the new districts is progressing according to plan.
Road marking and signboards for e-scooters and their designated or shared tracks with bicycles are installed on site. In addition to signage; laws, regulations and technical requirements are established for individuals and companies to follow in order to ensure the safety of individuals and to protect public property while using e-scooters.
