Cycle Facilities and Micro-mobility Policy – no storage of e-scooters allowed
The University’s Abandoned Bike Policy has been superseded by the Cycle Facilities and Micro-mobility Policy. This includes that the university does not permit use and storage of e-scooters or other power transporters on its campuses.
This policy outlines the expected behaviour of cyclists on our campuses, including use of facilities including cycle parking, showers, lockers, the process of removal of abandoned bikes and guidance on cycle safety and security.
Additionally the policy also now includes the use of micro-mobility devices (lightweight transport devices, non-motorised e-bikes, kick scooters and skateboards, and motorised devices (powered transporters) such as e-scooters, hoverboards, segways, go-peds and u-wheels).
E-scooters and other powered transporters/ motorised micro-mobility devices fall within the legal definition of a “motor vehicle” and therefore motor vehicle laws apply to them. Currently it is illegal to use powered transporters on a public road and on dedicated spaces such as cycle lanes and pavements. It is also illegal to use powered transporters on private land without the permission of the landowner.
The University of Brighton does not permit use and storage of e-scooters or other power transporters on its campuses.
