Getting around Liverpool
e-scooters for hire
400 hundred e-scooters are available to hire in the city centre and surrounding areas including Toxteth, Dingle and Kensington, as well as key transport hubs and hospitals.
The year-long pilot scheme that started in October 2020 is a joint initiative of Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, Liverpool City Council and e-scooter company VOI.
How do I hire an e-scooter?
Information about hiring an e-scooter is available on www.voiscooters.com where you can also download the 'VOI Scooters: Get Magic Wheels' app. You can also call VOI on 0800 3768179 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for support.
- e-scooters cost £1 to unlock, plus £0.20 per minute - unlimited daily and monthly passes will also be available
- users must have at least a provisional driving licence to hire an e-scooter - it is against the law to ride an e-scooter on a pavement
- you can hire one at city centre hospitals including the Royal Liverpool and Women’s Hospitals - with 75% discount available to NHS staff
- users are encouraged to use hand sanitiser and wear gloves
To help prevent transmission of Covid-19, all vehicles are disinfected daily and handlebars are wrapped in Shieldex Copper-Tape which kills 99.98% of coronavirus on contact.
Do I need to report an e-scooter left on a street?
No. Users can just leave them on the street when they have finished with them. A GPS tracker signals to the VOI team to collect them.
