Board of Executive Directors of the Roads and Transport Authority (#RTA) announced the start of civil site works for the infrastructure of the operation of the Electric Scooter in preparation for the launch of Phase I of the project, which would cover 10 Dubai districts and start operation in the first quarter of 2022.
The step responds to the Executive Council’s endorsement of the shared mobility plan and the supporting e-scooter policy. It culminates the huge success of the trial run phase of the e-scooter, which started in October 2020 in 5 key areas of Dubai. Until the end of September, e-scooters have made about half a million trips. RTA plans to expand the use and tracks of e-scooters to include specific residential areas, and 23 new districts later on.
