Milton Keynes Council are trialling E-scooters as part of an innovative national scheme, working with Lime, Spin and Ginger. The trial will last up to 12 months and with no more than 900 scooters deployed during the trial.
The Open University have decided to put Walton Hall campus into a ‘no go zone’ so users will not be permitted on site while riding an E-scooter.
E-scooter Operators have been informed of our decision meaning that the OU has been added to their geo fenced “no go areas” on their maps. E-scooter power will simply not work on-site. E-scooter users will be informed of all “no go areas” when accessing the Operator websites.
There are a number of reasons for E-scooters not to be allowed to be used on-site, these include:
Security will be informed of this decision and will be required to take appropriate action should any E-scooters enter campus.
If you use a hired or privately owned E-scooter on any public road or outside of trial areas, you can be fined up to £300 on a fixed-penalty notice, and six points on your driving licence if you have one.
Estates will periodically be reviewing E-scooters utilisation, considering current legislation and the findings from the Milton Keynes trial.
