TFL Cracks Down on Electric Scooters in London Tube

Transport for London has launched an investigation into passengers riding e-scooters on the tube and railways.

The TFL prohibits electric scooters from plying the tube system, which is why the new “Wild West” of scooter-riding will likely be banned.

According to UberBike, there are over 20,000 scooters in London, the majority of which are in the private sector, including Uber.

The new displays were introduced in conjunction with the official launch of London’s e-scooter trial on June 7 to remind people of the regulations regarding their use on public transportation.

Customers using the London Underground and railways are reminded that riding electric scooters on trains or stations is prohibited.

Posters were first displayed in London stations last week as the service intensified efforts to prevent passengers from entering with the contraptions – unless they were folded.

However, because rental scooters are not collapsible, riders who are spotted by staff will be turned away from the gate.
