Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation started out as providing the legal framework for e-scooters to operate in Georgia. The as passed version just includes language from HB 215, which establishes regulations for electric assisted bicycle, "e-bikes" and defines three classes of e-bikes. E-bikes would follow the same rules of the road as human powered bikes and local governments would have the authority to allow or restrict the use of e-bikes on bicycle paths or shared paths where bicycles are permitted.
