      From what I’ve read these are terrible investments and the companies generally lose a lot of $$$.

        I have read some rules from BC and other municipalities and most state that e-scooters are not allowed on roads. They are also not allowed on sidewalks. The are also not allowed on most bike paths and trails. They are only permitted on private property.

        When will the highway act and municipal regulations be updated to allow e-scooters?

          Shared e-scooters to be banned in Montreal in 2020

          The announcement was made at Wednesday's executive committee meeting by Coun. Éric Alan Caldwell, citing mass noncompliance with the city's rules for the vehicles.

          "Our rules were not respected and the operators did not ensure they were respected," Caldwell said.

          Caldwell said that while e-scooters can have a place in cities such as Montreal, they must not come at the expense of impeding other modes of transportation in the city. "And that's what happened last year," he concluded.

          "That's why, in 2020, there will be no e-scooters in the streets of Montreal."

          The e-scooters — operated by companies including Bird Canada and Lime — had been allowed last summer as part of a pilot project.

          But a city report, which was tabled at Wednesday's executive committee meeting, found that during the pilot, scooters were only parked in their designated zones 20 per cent of the time.

          "Eight e-scooters on 10 did not respect our rules... which led to problems," Caldwell said. "Security issues. Issues for other modes of transportation, be it pedestrians, cyclists, or drivers. Issues that led to disorder in the city."

            Fleet of ride-sharing Bird e-scooters arriving in Alberta cities next month but sad to hear that Nashville's mayor announced the city would consider banning them after a 26-year-old man died after being hit by a vehicle while riding a scooter.
