Scooters on Campus

Scooters are allowed on campus, although we highly recommend students take advantage of alternative transportation options, such as bike share, fare free transit or the bike lease programs through Transportation Services.

The university Standard Administrative Procedures (SAP) document outlines the use of scooter and other wheeled forms of transportation at Texas A&M.

Please note, electric devices with installed or removable lithium batteries are not allowed to be used, stored, or charged in any university buildings or facilities due to the significant fire hazard posed by these devices. This includes on-campus housing. The SAP further outlines areas on campus where scooters are prohibited from being operated and left when not in operation. Additionally, scooters should not be operated in areas marked as “Dismount Zones” or “No Wheel Zones.”

  • Scooters may only be operated in areas where bicycle traffic is allowed.
  • Scooters should be operated at a low speed in the presence of pedestrians and pedestrians always have the right of way.
  • Scooters should be parked at bike racks only.

Wearing a helmet is highly recommended, but not required by law.
