Kerry McCarthy Labour MP for Bristol East
I had my first trip on one of the Voi Scooters electric scooters today – it was surprisingly easy to pick up (I found it much easier to get going than my staffer!) and a good way to get around.
These rental e-scooters are the only electric scooters that are currently legal to use in Bristol. I’m aware of some issues, e.g. people riding scooters on the pavement or parking them in inappropriate places, and will be calling for these to be resolved, but electric scooters will have a role to play in getting people around sustainably in the future.
