The Norwegian Act on shared micromobility on public ground provides the legal basis for municipal regulations on what in essence are shared e-scooters. This report documents a wide group of stakeholders’ experiences with the Act. Overall, the Act has contributed to achieving its objectives and in particular those of safe and accessible public spaces. The Act provides Norwegian municipalities with an efficient tool for gaining control over a shared e-scooter market which, prior to the Act, caused chaos in several larger cities. Our assessment is that the Act’s provisions are in general appropriate. We recommend, however, that some items be improved. Further, municipalities need advice on how to draft local regulations that do not violate the the EEA-Agreement and in particular the Services Directive.
