The Department has collected robust evidence on the e-scooter trials, but with what is still relatively new technology there remains things that can be learnt. The Department will extend e-scooter trials to 31 May 2026, and use this additional time to supplement our evidence and draw on further experience. The Government remains committed to legislating when parliamentary time allows.
