Camden joins London’s rental e-scooter trial

28 September 2021/Categories: CILT, Industry News, Transport Planning, Net-Zero

TfL, Camden Council and London Councils have announced an expansion of the capital's trial of rental e-scooters, with e-scooters now available to rent in Camden.


Camden becomes the tenth borough to join the trial alongside Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea, Richmond, Tower Hamlets (including Canary Wharf), City of London, Lambeth, Southwark and Westminster.


There have been 165,000 trips made on the rental e-scooters since the trial launched, with the average rental lasting 22 minutes over an average distance of 2.8km. 


As Camden joins the trial area, the number of vehicles in the trial will increase to a maximum of 3,480.


The number of vehicles has quadrupled since June and TfL have worked with London Councils and the London boroughs to ensure that high safety standards have been met by closely monitoring the trial.


Helen Sharp, TfL's e-scooter trial lead, said: “We're really pleased that Camden has joined London's rental e-scooter trial and we have worked closely with them to ensure that this expansion meets the needs of everybody in the area.


“Safety continues to be at the heart of our trial and we continue to work with the e-scooter operators, London Councils and the London boroughs to ensure rigorous standards are being met.


“London's e-scooter trial continues to provide data and insight into the long-term role e-scooters could play in a green and sustainable future for the capital, as well as the role they can play in avoiding a car-led recovery from the pandemic.”
