Micromobility schemes

Micromobility schemes have existed in Southampton since March 2021 when Voi rental e-scooters were launched as part of the wider Department for Transport national e-scooter trial. In October 2022, bike share was added to the mix when the Beryl Bikes by Breeze scheme launched. These schemes offer residents and visitors a green and healthy way to get around the city which improves air quality and reduces congestion.

The proposed terms and conditions that will be incorporated into consents granted by the council under Part VIIA of the Highways Act 1980 permitting Voi or Beryl Bikes to respectively place rental e-scooter and bike share parking facilities on a footway and which will govern the operators’ respective footway parking arrangements at each prospective licensed site in Southampton can be found via the links below:
