On Thursday (today), the Government announced that as from 1st March 2024, e-kick scooters will be banned from the Islands’ streets. On the other hand, the use of privately owned e-kick scooters will remain permissible under the existing law.

Nonetheless, the Government intends to introduce incentives to encourage individuals interested in using this mode of transportation to own their e-kick scooters.

This ban aims to promote responsible e-kick scooter usage and reduce inconvenience for communities and people. Currently Malta has three companies that offer e-kick scooter rentals: Bolt, Whizascoot and Bird.

In a statement, the Government said that despite increased enforcement and fines, “communities have continued to endure the disturbances caused by rented e-kick scooters. These enforcement resources will also be redirected towards other efforts aimed at enhancing road safety.”

The news was announced along with the publication of the national cycling strategy for public consultation. The document can be accessed through the website.
