The Department for Transport is still exploring options for how data is collected and shared during trials of rental e-scooters. Officials are working closely with operators and local authorities to agree an appropriate data model before trials begin.

Use of the Mobility Data Specification Provider element is likely to be required for some elements of the data model and the Department is in discussion with operators about the feasibility of this.
