Shared Electric Scooter (e-scooter) Pilot Project

In August 2021, Roll Scooters were awarded a permit to operate their shared e-Scooters in Cochrane on a two-year pilot program. While the Town provides the program framework, the program is fully funded and operated by Roll Scooters.

On March 25, 2022, the Town of Cochrane is pleased to welcome back the e-scooter pilot project with Canadian-owned, operated and developed company, Roll. 

This pilot project supports the Town’s environmental and transportation goals by limiting carbon emissions, reducing traffic congestion, and minimizing transportation gaps. The pilot will be at no cost to the Town, with a portion of the revenue from each trip donated to the Town for micro-mobility related projects, including building and maintaining protected bike lanes. 

Similar to last year, Cochrane can expect up to 150 e-scooters found throughout the serviceable areas in town, between Fireside in the south to Heritage Hills in the north. 

In 2021, Roll reported the following usage statistics:

  • 6612 total trips
  • 1963 unique trips (i.e. unique users)
  • 3.2km average riding distance
  • 18.44 minutes average riding time
