How to use Voi in Birmingham
Safe riding starts with you
Why are the scooters on the street?
Voi was chosen by West Midlands Combined Authority and Birmingham City Council to provide an affordable, convenient and greener form of transport for everyone. The aim of the scheme is to trial the new form of transport locally, and offer locals a greener way to travel around town in the future.
Where can I ride?
The scooters can be used in a 130 km2 area in Birmingham. A great thing about riding Vois is that you can ride as good as all over but there are some exceptions. You can discover more about the Voi Zones – using a technology called geofencing, your e-scooter gently adjusts its speed according to the Zone you’re in.
So, for example, in Birmingham, all around the Town Hall and Victoria Square is a Slow Speed Zone to be aware of everything going on around. Cycling lanes are also e-scooting lanes and, in Birmingham, they are improving all the time.
We ask all Voi riders to respect the rules below when riding one of our scooters in Birmingham. You can also find more information about how to get started here.

Be aware of geofencing. All our scooters are bound under what we call geofencing. With help of the scooter's GPS, geofencing helps decide where the scooters are able to ride and park. Please be mindful of the map before you start your ride.
*Red = No Parking Zone. The scooters aren't allowed to be parked.
* Black = No Riding Zone. In these areas, the scooters aren't allowed and the gear will hence stop working if entering.
* Yellow = Slow Zone. The scooters will slow down to adhere to road speed.
