Shared Use Mobility Pilot Program

Shared Use Mobility Devices are an emerging technology that may help address the first-mile/last-mile alternative mode of transportation. In an effort to understand this new technology, the City of El Paso has created a 12-month pilot program to allow the City to evaluate the operation of these devices and propose rules and regulations to ensure a safe, equitable, and alternative mode of local transportation. The rules and regulations establish standards aimed at the operation, parking, and safety of pedestrians and riders.

 

Background

On January 8, 2019, the City Council approved an ordinance to establish the 12-month pilot program for the Shared Use Mobility Devices, which also included the framework for the permitting process, insurance, penalties, and authority. The Rules and Regulations outlines the application requirements, operations, parking, data, etc. The Rules and Regulations are to govern the operation of the devices and are to maintain the safety of the public, as well as gathering data to better regulate and understand this new alternative mode of transportation.

Report an Issue

To report any issues of an improperly parked device, devices impeding access to building entrances or sidewalks, encroachments on ADA accessibility, or any other problems, violations, or comments, you may contact the device provider directly:

As stated in the Rules and Regulations, improperly parked devices or issues concerning devices must be addressed within two (2) hours of the provider receiving the notice during weekdays and twelve hours on evenings, weekends, and holidays.

Shared Use Mobility Device concerns can also be reported to the City of El Paso through 3-1-1. Information received through citizen reporting will help address issues, inform necessary changes or updates to better regulate this new technology.

Use of a helmet is encouraged. When riding near streetcar tracks, the El Paso Streetcar encourages you to be streetcar safe. STOP. LOOK. LISTEN.
