Electric Bicycle and Scooter Draft Policy Proposal

Closed 12 Mar 2021

Opened 29 Jan 2021


The Isle of Man Government is committed to the health and wellbeing of its residents creating an enjoyable place to live, grow, work and play. As the use of electric bicycles and scooters becomes more popular and technology improves, the Department has identified that a clear, concise policy is required to support the adoption of these technologies.

The Department wants to encourage a modal shift in transport choice away from vehicles such as cars by increasing the number of people cycling and travelling actively.
