Electric Bicycles and Motorized Scooters

E-Bikes and motorized scooters provide a great way to get around Key West.

Overview of 3-class systems for e-bikesLocal Restrictions

Due to the often narrow and congested sidewalks in Key West, generally, the sidewalks are available only for pedestrian and non-electric bicycle use.  Exceptions to this allow for ADA compliance and usage along areas marked as "multi-use trails."

Multi-Use Trails

Designated "multi-use trails" include a sidewalk area where it is permissible to operate an electric bicycle, motorized scooter, or other micromobility device provided that the operator yields to pedestrians and doesn't exceed 15mph.  

Public Transportation

Bus routes and real-time information are available online at Key West Transit.
