The bike and scooter sharing options in Cleveland change from time to time – it’s the the nature of the industry. But choice is good, and having options and easy availability makes moving around car-free convenient. Due to feedback gained from the original 6-month demonstration period, the reintroduction of scooters includes longer available hours, as well as higher speeds. Scooter and bike riders should ride in the street with the flow of traffic, using bike lanes where possible.
Here is a rundown of your current options:
| Bicycles |
| Scooters |
Note that under the updated permit, scooters are now active from 5am-9pm.
These companies also have programs in place for riders without smartphones and/or credit cards. These programs are outlined on our Equity & Access page.
More information about the program can be found on the city’s Dockless Scooter and Bike Share page.
For all of these bicycles and devices, the same City parking guidelines are in place:
Riders may park scooters or bikes anywhere on the sidewalk in the “furniture zone,” as long access for others is not blocked. The furniture zone is the area between the curb and the walkway where there may already be trash cans, bus stops, benches and bike racks.
Riders are encouraged to keep an eye out to avoid blocking:
Scooters and bikes should never be parked in the roadway and should always be left standing upright.
