Electric scooters are growing in popularity and scooter-sharing programs are taking Europe by storm.
The Micromobility Regulations 2019 set the regulatory framework for the licensing of electric scooters sharing services in Malta.
In essence, no person shall carry out an escooter sharing services unless in possession of a license issued by Transport Malta, the competent authority for transport in Malta.
Operators may choose to operate under 2 different models, being:
- the ‘free-floating sharing service’, where a user may, through a mobile app, rent a escooter from anywhere on the road or
- the ‘docking station sharing service’, where a user may through a mobile app or otherwise, rent an e-scooter from specific sites designated by Transport Malta to this effect.
