More than 350,000 journeys have been completed since the start of the London shared e-scooter trials, the latest Transport for London data reveals.

The trial, which got underway on 7 June earlier this year, now covers ten London boroughs, with operators Lime, TIER, and Dott chosen to provide the devices.

As of 24 October, 355,000 journeys had been completed, with 100,000 trips made between 27 September and 24 October, the most in any four-week period so far.

The maximum fleet size has grown to 3,480 e-scooters, up from 2,835, while a total of nine serious injuries have been reported.

Both the average trip distance and time fell in the last four-week period compared with the overall average, which is now 2.7km and 21 minutes.

This is the first four-week period to include Camden, which joined the trial at the end of September.

The UK e-scooter trials are set to end on March 2022, although the London trial conclusion may be extended further.
