12 month e-scooter trial has begun in Kensington

In early June, TfL began a 12 month trial with rental e-scooters in Kensington and Chelsea and four more London boroughs. RBKC has set up 20 e-scooter rental bays across the borough, used by the three participating rental companies. The rental e-scooters have a much lower maximum speed than most private e-scooters, but they are legal to use on public roads, which the private ones aren't.

Update: Pavement licences extended to autumn 2022

In order to help kickstart pubs and restaurants when they, hopefully, will be allowed to serve customers outside from 12 April, the temporary pavement licence scheme, which enables many of them to erect temporary outdoor serving areas on the pavement, will be extended to the end of September 2022.
