Improperly parked e-scooters frustrate other road users, hinder accessibility and can in some cases lead to injuries or dangerous situations. This project evaluates pilot projects with parking racks in Oslo and painted parking spaces in Trondheim and Oslo. Both measures have a good effect; over half of the e-scooter riders who end their trip in the test areas park in or near the parking solutions. The parking racks in Oslo have a Voi logo and we see a clear relationship between e-scooter company and parking in the racks. No such company effect is found for the painted parking spaces. From GPS data, we see that the effect of both racks and parking spaces decreases with distance and that they have the greatest effect when placed in the areas where people normally end their trips. The results from the surveys also show that a high frequency of parking spaces is important.
