Electric scooter trial launched in Newcastle
Written by Jane Lythgoe on 16 September 2020
People in Newcastle-under-Lyme and Stafford can now get around town on hired electric scooters as part of a county trial and help to reduce carbon emissions with less car travel.
Staffordshire County Council and transport partner Amey have joined with electric scooter providers to launch micro-mobility trials in Stafford and Newcastle-Under-Lyme, as part of the ADEPT Smart Places Live Labs programme.
The Live Labs SIMULATE programme is designed to test new innovations that can radically improve mobility and air quality across Staffordshire. Micro-mobility is seen as a key addition to the future of shared transport services and a means to enable people to connect more easily and sustainably.
