[ARCHIVED] Norfolk Scoots to 1 Million Miles

NORFOLK, VA – The pandemic may have delayed the one million mile-stone by a couple of months, but within two years of launching the scooter program with Lime, the City of Norfolk’s riders have surpassed one million miles.*

This means less cars on the road while providing residents and visitors quick and convenient ways to get around. With data showing most trips equaling less than a mile, riders are using this form of micromobility as an easy way to get to their destinations.

With over 1100 scooters available on Norfolk streets and the installation of parking corrals, the City reminds users to follow the rules and stay safe while riding. Creating safe streets for all users is the goal of Norfolk’s Vision Zero initiative.

  1. Don’t drink and scoot/drive/ride. No matter what form of transportation you use—car, bike, scooter or walking— leave the driving to someone else if you’ve been drinking.
  2. Protect your head and wear a helmet. Like cyclists, scooter riders are encouraged to wear helmets while riding.
  3. Share the road, not a scooter. Electric scooters are designed for one rider at a time. If your pal needs a ride, get them their own scooter for optimal fun and safety.
  4. Share the road and obey all traffic laws. Be respectful of those around you. Obey all traffic signals and go with the flow of traffic. Scooters belong in the bike lane or on a street under 25 mph. Scooters are not allowed on sidewalks downtown.
  5. Park responsibly. You can leave your Lime in designated parking spaces/corrals, near any public bike rack around the city or curbside. Do not block sidewalks or pedestrian curb ramps.
  6. Riders 18 and over.  Parents, scooters are not a toy but a transportation option. With speeds up to 20 mph, adults only please!
