E-scooter-sharing services are popular as a way to get around for work and errands, and statistics from recent years are proof. According to the Governors Highway Safety Association (GSHA), there were 52 million e-scooter trips in 2021 – up more than 50% from the previous year. These vehicles are affordable to rent, easy to park, and convenient in highly congested urban areas like Miami. Plus, they are also a fun way to see the city’s sights, attractions, and neighborhoods. It is true that you can ride your bike, but using an e-scooter is cooler and more enjoyable in the tropical climate of South Florida.
However, e-scooters are not permitted in all areas of Miami. The nature of the sharing services has made it necessary for officials to limit where you can ride for the safety of all road users. However, there are still plenty of routes that are both scenic and safe so that you can avoid the risks of e-scooter accidents in Miami. Check out the following when you are up for a ride.
1. Ocean Drive: If you want to experience city action on one side and gorgeous beach views on the other, head to South Beach and ride along Ocean Drive. There are designated bike lanes that are accessible to e-scooters and several parks along the route for a quick stop to rehydrate. If you want a longer rest, countless restaurants and bars line the length of Ocean Drive.
