Scooter and micro-mobility companies were given a heads up to remove their fleet from the Central Business District immediately due to ongoing protests in downtown Orlando.
The temporary ban on scooters is effective as of 6 p.m. June 1 and will be evaluated on a daily basis by City staff as the week progresses.
All scooters and e-bikes must be removed from the downtown core and will not be allowed to be staged there until further notice. The limits of the scooter ban run from Colonial Drive to the north, Mills Avenue to the east, Gore Street to the south, and Orange Blossom Trail to the west. That being said, the City is still asking that the scooters be stored away and not simply open for use outside of the No Scooter Zone. .
The No-Go Zone was preceded by the City asking scooter operators to simply turn off their fleets on Sunday evening due to the protests in the downtown core from roughly 9:30 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday morning.
