Non-Standard Vehicle Permits, San Francisco, California, 2018
5 minutes Date Enacted: Apr 17, 2018
This ordinance, passed by the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA) Board of Supervisors, was written in response to the proliferation of electric scooters (here defined as “non-standard vehicle”; California DMV falls under “electric scooter“). They amended their taxi/for-hire code to include the following
(d) For any person or entity to operate a Non-Standard Vehicle on a public street without the applicable permit issued by the SFMTA in accordance with Article 1200 ofthis Code.
The SFMTA then launched a 12-month permitting and pilot program to regulate electric scooters.
