Valencia is not following in the footsteps of Catalonia and Seville and will continue to allow electric scooters on public transport.
No, neither the city of Valencia nor the Valencian Community in general have banned the ability to take the electric scooter on board the different means of public transport.
Therefore, it is still allowed to ride your electric scooter on Metrovalència, EMT Valencia, Renfe Rodalies and Metrobus.
Unlike other cities such as Catalonia and Seville, Valencia has decided to continue betting on multimodality, allowing the use of electric scooters and public transport to be combined.
The exponential growth of electric scooter use in recent years has led users to find the best ways to get around their city.
In this sense, former regular users of public transport have found the electric scooter a great ally to connect their journeys. This way, you can take the scooter from its origin to the metro/bus/train stop, make the longest journey by any of these means, and then arrive quickly and comfortably at the final destination.
On the other hand, the emergence of this combination of collective transport and personal mobility have generated a great synergy that has benefited them. In the case of public transport, the appearance of the scooter has made it possible to better structure its defined structure with the needs of users. Likewise, being able to make most of the journey by metro, bus or train allows scooter users to save time and money while still using their vehicle to complete their journey.
So if Valencia has not banned the use of electric scooters in public transport, why have cities as important as Seville or even all of Catalonia?
The reasons given by their respective public administrations focus on some accidents that have occurred recently due to scooter batteries catching fire. In the case of Catalonia, especially after an electric scooter caught fire during a journey on local trains.
Considering the approach that some communities and cities in Spain have decided to take, at Miivo we have counted on Atriamove (specialists in electric scooters) to give some recommendations for using the scooter electric on board public transport.
