The Committee vocalized and strongly advocated for a ban on all electric scooters.
Councillor Saito stated that she would abstain from the vote on this matter as she could not support a full ban due to being the Chair of the Road Safety Committee that supports E-Scooters.
That the Recommendations contained in the Accessible Transportation Subcommittee Report dated October 19, 2020 be approved, with the exception of the matter on E-Scooters and Mississauga’s Approach to Micromobility.
