E-scooters and other electric mobility devices are now allowed on Michigan State University’s campus.

The Board of Trustees approved an ordinance that allows electric mobility devices to be used on roads and in bicycle lanes.

The MSU Police Department will begin identifying designated parking areas for these devices.

“How students, faculty and staff get around campus is continuously evolving,” said Kelly Roudebush, chief of MSUPD. “Our goal is to provide a safe environment for any type of mobility device including buses, cars, pedestrians, bicyclists and e-scooters.”
