NEWS - B.C.'s Active Transportation Strategy
The Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure has announced proposed changes to the Motor Vehicle Act (MVA) that would allow alternative types of transport such as Segways, e-scooters and electric unicycles to be used legally. Under Infrastructure Amendments in Bill 35-2019 a new category of vehicle is contemplated: regulated motorized personal mobility device.
People using these devices will be considered to be pedestrians for the purposes of the MVA.
The announcement includes a link to B.C.'s Active Transportation Strategy: Move, Commute, Connect.
The Active Transportation Design Guide is a companion document that identifies how these devices fit into our transportation infrastructure. Your feedback on it is also welcomed.
