Creve Coeur is about to revise the rules for scooters and electric bikes

ST. LOUIS — City Council members from the St. Louis County suburb of Creve Coeur will meet tonight, with regulation of scooters and similar vehicles on the agenda Monday night.

Legislation passed by Missouri state legislators in 2021 further defines e-bikes. The city’s proposed ordinance adds the vehicle to city codes and clarifies where they and scooters would not be allowed.

Under the revised city ordinance, e-bikes would be defined as:

  • “Class 1 electric bicycle” means an electric bicycle equipped with a motor which provides assistance only when the cyclist is pedaling and which ceases to provide assistance when the bicycle reaches the speed of twenty miles per hour;
  • “Class 2 electric bicycle”, an electric bicycle equipped with a motor which may be used exclusively to propel the bicycle and which is not capable of providing assistance when the bicycle reaches the speed of twenty miles per hour
  • Class 3 electric bicycle, electric bicycle equipped with a motor that provides assistance only when the cyclist is pedaling and ceases to provide assistance when the bicycle reaches the speed of twenty-eight miles per hour.

Motorized scooters and bicycles would not be allowed in any city park, with no bicycle of any kind allowed to travel more than 12 miles per hour in a city park.

City Council meets at the Creve Coeur Government Center, 300 North New Ballas Road, beginning at 7 p.m.
