Personal mobility devices

New rules for personal mobility devices (PMDs) commenced on 1 December 2021 to allow PMDs on footpaths, shared paths, bicycle paths and some roads in Tasmania.

PMDs are small, electrically powered devices designed to transport one person over short to medium distances. Examples include e-scooters and e-skateboards.

Privately owned PMDs and e-scooter ‘hire and ride’ commercial services will be covered by these rules.
