E-scooters & e-bikes not permitted on Blackpool Transport vehicles

10 months ago Tue 5th Sep 2023

From 8th September 2023, e-scooters, e-bikes and e-unicycles will not be permitted on Blackpool Transport vehicles. This includes electric bikes, scooters and unicycles that can be folded or carried.

Please note that any devices used for disabilities (i.e. Electric mobility scooters) are still accepted on Blackpool Transport vehicles as their batteries are regulated by manufacturers.

This change is due to fire and safety risks associated with these electronic devices. Many are unregulated and use lithium-ion batteries, which are prone to catching fire. In incidents such as these, our staff and customers would be at risk of harm.

Therefore, we have made the decision to ban all e-scooters, e-bikes and e-unicycles on our vehicles to protect the safety of our staff and customers.

If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch with our Customer Experience team.
