dockless scooters banned from Fort Lauderdale Beach in March and April

Dockless Scooter Update

Over the next two months, the City of Fort Lauderdale is prepared to welcome visitors from all over the world to our vibrant, dynamic, and fun-filled beach, which TripAdvisor just named as one of the Top 10 Beaches in the U.S.! We are committed to ensuring the health, safety, and welfare of residents and visitors during this high impact event and throughout the year.

Between March 1 and April 7, 2019, electric or motorized scooters, and any other forms of dockless mobility, will be prohibited on the barrier island, per City of Fort Lauderdale Ordinance C-19-03, Sec. 8-55.5. The boundaries of the barrier island include the beach property, and up to the westernmost bank of the Intracoastal Waterway to the west, Southeast 17th Street to the south, and Northeast 42nd Court to the north.

The Fort Lauderdale Police Department will be monitoring Spring Break activities to ensure that all City ordinances are followed. The City of Fort Lauderdale looks forward to a safe and fun-filled Spring Break! The public is encouraged to follow us on Twitter (@FTLCityNews).
