COSA Survey: E-Bikes/Scooters/Skateboards on Trails

Hello COSA colleagues,

The City of Fort Collins is gathering information on how other agencies regulate electric-transportation devices (bikes, scooters, skateboards) on their trail systems. Our City will be piloting a program next year to allow e-bikes on our paved trails. City policy currently prohibits e-scooters and e-skateboards on our trail system. We would be appreciative of your jurisdiction’s practices and policies regarding the following questions:

  • What is your organization’s existing policy regarding e-bikes/scooters/skateboards on trails?
  • Do your policies differ between paved and unpaved trails?
  • How does your organization enforce the policy? Any issues? Any solutions?
  • Do you regulate speed limits for these types of transportation devices on trails?

Please email responses to jwimmer. Thank you for your time.
