View original Transport Committee to hold first inquiry session into e-scooters

The Transport Committee has announced that the first session of its inquiry into e-scooters will take place on Wednesday 1 July. The session will explore the role e-scooters could play in the UK’s future transport system, whether their legalisation could decrease congestion or reduce active travel, where they should be used and the implications of this, whether e-scooters could help to meet net zero targets, and the safety implications for them. The witnesses will be as follows: Professor Jillian Anable, Chair in Transport and Energy, University of Leeds, Dr Graeme Sherriff, Research Fellow, University of Salford, Rachel Lee, Policy and Research Manager, Living Streets, Lorna Lee, Campaigns Manager, Automobile Association (AA), Phillip Darnton OBE, Chair, Bicycle Association and Eleanor Southwood, Chair, Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB).

With LEPs now responsible for significant amounts of local transport funding decisions, the Transport Knowledge Hub is a timely new tool for local decision makers. At the LEP Network, we know the huge value of giving LEPs a forum to share best practice and engage with other stakeholders, so we are delighted to be involved with a transport-specific project which supports spending decisions that make a genuine difference.

Warren Ralls, Director, LEP Network
