Information on potential strike action affecting waste and recycling services 12-18 June and 26 June-9 July.

The West of England Combined Authority (WECA) region is the first area in the UK to offer residents both hop-on hop-off and long-term rental E-scooters.

Privately owned e-scooters are illegal. You can only legally ride e-scooters that have been hired or leased through this trial. You must be over 18 and have a valid provisional or full licence.

Hop-on hop-off e-scooters

These are available in Bristol, Bath, and parts of South Gloucestershire. They can help residents and visitors to get around central areas.

Groups of e-scooters will also be available at other key locations such as stations, university campuses, hospitals, and large employment sites.

Long-term rental hire e-scooters

You can rent these across the West of England. This means you can keep an e-scooter at home for an extended period, giving more flexibility to travel within the region.
