So if you’re wondering where exactly you can ride e-scooters in Tauranga, check out our Tauranga Electric Scooter Guide below that includes a list of cool spots in and around the city.
But, before we get into those locations, let’s quickly go through the basics. We checked with the Tauranga City Council to give you some answers to some common questions about e-scooter rules.
The short answer is no. According to the Tauranga City Council, it is not a legal requirement to wear a helmet when you ride an electric scooter, but it is highly recommended you wear one for your safety.
