Ride safely in Birmingham!

Safe riding starts with you

Thank you for showing an interest in Voi!

E-Scooters offer the potential for convenient, fun, clean and affordable travel while social distancing measures are in place, reduce reliance on car trips and lower harmful tailpipe emissions.

As part of the response to Covid-19, the Department for Transport (DFT) has made changes that allow e-scooters to be used on public roads within an allocated operational zone, often using the same road space as cyclists. The aim of the scheme is to trial the new form of transport locally, and offer locals a greener way to travel around town in the future.

You may have noticed some of our bright, coral coloured scooters dotted around Brum, these are available on a short-term (by the minute) rental basis and can be used by any member of the public.

We ask all Voi riders to respect the following rules when riding one of our scooters in Birmingham:

Riding an e-scooter on the pavement is illegal!

Ride in bicycle lanes where possible and plan your route ahead of your journey

Do not ride on roads with a speed limit above 30mph

Only ONE person per e-scooter

You are encouraged to wear a helmet!

Be aware of pedestrians and other road users!
