Abstract

This report presents the !ndings of a University of Salford study focused on the shared e-scooter trial taking place in Greater Manchester and launched in autumn 2020. Sharing schemes are services that make vehicles, such as e-scooters, available for use on a shortterm rental basis. In the case of the Lime e-scooter share scheme operated in Greater Manchester, vehicles are parked in virtual docks within the boundaries of the scheme. The Greater Manchester trial sits within a Department for Transport programme that aims to understand the potential of e-scooters in UK towns and cities, and their impact on people and mobility practices. Greater Manchester’s scheme is run by Lime and has covered two areas in the conurbation. The Salford trial has developed from an initially compact area centred around the University and MediaCityUK and has expanded more recently to encompass a larger area that includes other major employers and transport interchanges. The Rochdale scheme launched in April 2021 and concluded the following year after the planned 12-month trial period.
