This report documents main findings and descriptive statistics from two web surveys about e-scooters, which were carried out in October-November 2021. One survey was sent to users who had registered with e-scooter rental companies. The other survey was sent to a representative sample of Oslo citizens. We find that e-scooters’ competitive advantages are that they are quick, flexible and available. E-scooters are largely used to/from work/education, and one in five trips is to/from another transport mode – in particular public transport. When we account for exposure (frequency of use), we find no differences in accident risk between men and women and between age groups, with the exception of higher risk among youths. In general, e-scooter users view parking practices less critically than non-users.
