The e-scooter hire is starting in Canberra on 19/9/2020. The ACT Government video is rather good. Here is the text from the official video and Canberra bike articles about e-scooters.

“Rental e-scooters launch in Canberra to provide a safe, convenient and socially-distanced way to travel. Up to 1,500 e-scooters will be available across the city including Inner North, Inner South and Belconnen. Geofencing technology will control where they can be ridden and parked, and how fast they can travel. A maximum speed of 15km/h on footpaths and up to 25km/h on other authorised locations. Riders are required to keep left and give way to pedestrians. They are not permitted on roads (unless there is no adjacent footpath) or on-road bicycle lanes. Wearing a safety helmet is mandatory. Costs $1 to unlock then 38 cents per minute, discounted passes are also available for frequent riders.”E-scooter video, Gordon Ramsay MLA, Facebook, 18/92020
