Bicycle and Related Devices Ordinance 

The Scottsdale City Council voted 6 - 1 to adopt changes to the bicycle ordinance at its regular meeting on Nov. 13. The new changes include guidelines for riding and parking private and dockless bicycles, electric bicycles and stand-up electric mini-scooters. 

Bike sharing

In November bike share companies began operating in Scottsdale. Customers use a smart phone app to find a nearby available bike, unlock it, ride it to their destination and then park and lock it,  making it available for the next customer. Bike share companies and their customers are responsible for obeying all state laws and city ordinances when using and parking bikes. The bike share companies also attempt to relocate bikes to match demand and to help ensure proper placement. Bike share companies are privately owned and operated and are not affiliated with the city. If you have a concern about a bike's location, it's best to contact the appropriate company directly.  Below is contact information for the four companies currently operating in Scottsdale, or they can also each be contacted through their associated smartphone app:

Bike share parking

The following video provides guidance on how best to park dockless bikes:

Please note that the video suggests parking bikes in bike racks. While this is acceptable and legal, we ask that users park bikes next to bike racks rather than in them to leave space available for those using personal bikes to lock their bikes.  The dockless bike share bikes have internal locking mechanisms and do not need to be in a bike rack to stand upright.

Transportation Master Plan

The Scottsdale City Council voted 5 – 2 to adopt the 2016 Transportation Master Plan  (PDF).  For more information, please see the City Council Meeting Agenda with notes  (PDF), or you may view a video recording of the meeting.
