DOCKLESS VEHICLE REGULATIONS

  


As e-scooters and e-bikes have become increasingly popular, the City of San Antonio is committed to striking a balance between innovative transportation options and providing safe, accessible sidewalks and streets. 

On October 11, 2018, the San Antonio City Council approved a six-month dockless vehicle pilot program. These rules will improve public safety and enable the City to gather data related to ridership and the value of this new transportation mode. The pilot program went into effect on October 19, 2018.

On May 30, 2019, City Council approved allowing currently permitted dockless vehicle operators to apply for permit extensions through September 30, 2019 so that dockless vehicle services continue uninterrupted until the conclusion of a Request for Proposals (RFP).

Companies that are currently permitted for more than 1,000 vehicles will be limited to 50 percent of their current permit total. The maximum number of permits that could be obtained by the seven operators is 8,850, which is a significant decrease from the current total of 16,100. No new companies will be able to obtain permits during this extension period.

Three operators will be selected through an RFP process to operate a total of 5,000 vehicles. The RFP will be issued on June 7, 2019 and will remain open for 45 days, with a due date of July 22, 2019. The process is expected to result in contracts for City Council consideration in early October 2019.
