Staffordshire and Amey launch e-scooter trials

A new e-scooter trial’s getting underway in Staffordshire designed to test whether the technology can improve mobility and air quality.

Staffordshire County Council and Amey have partnered with electric scooter providers Ginger and Zwings to launch micromobility trials in Stafford and Newcastle-Under-Lyme, as part of the ADEPT Smart Places Live Labs programme. 

The trials form part of the Department for Transport trials that were approved by the Government in July. They will involve 150 e-scooters.

They say Staffordshire is a unique location to trial e-scooters due to its rural location and size of its local towns – far smaller than city locations that have e-scooters available. Ginger will be managing the e-scooters in Stafford, with Zwings responsible for the trial at Newcastle-under-Lyme. They say by using two providers in different locations will provide valuable data that that will be evaluated through the SIMULATE programme over the 12month period that the e-scooters will be on trial.
