SAN ANTONIO (June 26, 2019) – The City of San Antonio wants to remind residents and visitors that beginning on July 1, riding scooters on sidewalks is prohibited.

On May 30, City Council voted to prohibit sidewalk riding effective July 1. As scooters have become increasingly popular, the City of San Antonio is committed to striking a balance between innovative transportation options and providing safe, accessible sidewalks and streets.
