Skip scooter riders respect their neighbors, are courteous and always ride responsibly. If you like Skips in Portland and want our friends at PBOT to consider letting Skips live in Portland permanently, then you can be the best Skip Ambassador by respecting others, riding where you are supposed to, and not acting like scooters are an entitlement. eScooters in Portland are a privilege, not a right, so we ask you to always act accordingly.
Wear a Helmet
Skip riders are also required to wear helmets at all times while riding. Contact us to get a free helmet and look for our “Skip Scouts” who are there to help you and generally have some helmets to give away too.
Do Not Ride in City Parks
Skips cannot be ridden in any city park or city park walkway (even if you see other company’s rider doing it). Scooters should not be dropped off at any City park or city park walkway locations and riders must comply with all parking requirements.
Do Not Ride on Sidewalks
Riding Skips on sidewalks is not allowed. Portland Skips live in bicycle lanes and in vehicle lanes, never on the sidewalks. Keep them happy, they get sad when taken to places they are not supposed to live.
