3 Foot Passing Law

“The operator of a vehicle overtaking another vehicle shall pass to the left at a safe distance and shall not again drive to the right until safely clear of the overtaken vehicle. When a motor vehicle overtakes and passes a bicycle, three feet or greater is considered a safe passing distance.”

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. The information on this page can change regularly, and sometimes vendors add in or remove availability. 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:

| Electric Bicycles |

E-bikes are active 24hrs per day and have a max speed of 20 miles per hour. Bird, Lime, and Veo currently operate bikes in Cleveland. The Bird and Lime bikes offer electric pedal-assist, while the Veo bikes have a throttle on the right handlebar.

| Electric Scooters |

Electric scooters are now active from 3 a.m. to 12 a.m. They all have a max speed of 15 miles per hour, but some companies offer a “beginner mode” that you can turn on to limit speed to 10 miles per hour, which might make riding or learning to ride more comfortable for some people. Bird, Lime, and Veo currently operate scooters in Cleveland.

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:

  • The pedestrian walkway
  • Bus stops and shelters
  • Doorways and emergency exits
  • Fire hydrants and standpipes
  • Driveways and sidewalk ramps

Scooters and bikes should never be parked in the roadway and should always be left standing upright.
