Austin is known for its many hike and bike trails.  Also being a forward and progressive city, however we are split about what is about to happen. Starting soon the Electric scooters will be allowed on SOME Austin trails. The debate is whether it should be allowed or not. 

The City of Austin will implement the pilot for both e-bikes and e-scooters on four trails:

  • Johnson Creek Greenbelt Trail
  • Shoal Creek Greenbelt Trail
  • Northern Walnut Creek Trail
  • Southern Walnut Creek Trail

The Ann and Roy Butler Hike and Bike Trail is also included in the pilot program, but the city will only allow e-bikes to operate on the trail.

So which way do you feel about this? Let us know
