Perceptions and experiences of Lime scooters: Summary survey results

Wednesday, June 12, 2019   Posted in: Resources and Information By: Administrator With tags: research, transport, safety

Two University of Canterbury researchers invited people - whether they had used an e-scooter or not - to tell them what they thought about e-scooter use in New Zealand in February and March 2019.

Lime e-scooters were available in four areas of New Zealand at that point: Auckland, Hutt Valley, Christchurch, and Dunedin. E-scooters had not been widely available prior to the arrival of Lime. Around the end of 2018 and the beginning of 2019 Lime e scooters arrived, and e-scooters:

  • became prominent in practice and in conversation;
  • were regularly featured in media stories, and
  • became increasingly available for personal purchase.

This first survey aimed to capture early data about the use and perceptions of e-scooters and the researchers (now at Lincoln University and the University of Otago) intend subsequent surveys to explore how the situation evolves over time.

A survey of attitudes to and use of e-scooters in New Zealand cities received 591 useable responses from a convenience sample - distributed through interest groups and social media.
