The e-scooters, managed by specialist company TIER, are available for both staff and students to use.
Initially the e-scooters will be restricted to one specific route between Campus East and West.
A small number of e-scooters will be parked outside the Spring Lane Teaching Building on Campus West, as well as in the Campus East Bus Interchange Car Park. These are free to use to shuttle between east and west.
Technology is built into the e-scooters to ensure they are only used on specific routes and parked in designated areas. They have a limited speed which automatically adjusts as the scooter enters areas with lower speed limits. Cycle helmets are built into the e-scooter.
Anyone wishing to use an e-scooter must download the TIER app and have their driving licence verified. TIER have also worked with the AA to create a wide range of safety resources designed to educate riders on safe e-scooter use, which we would advise anyone using a scooter to read.
