Marquette Prohibits Motorized Scooter Use On Campus Property
Knowing the City of Milwaukee is piloting dockless scooters, the Marquette University Police Department led a thorough review about the impact of such motorized vehicles on campus safety, which included input from leaders across functions and consultation with Marquette University Student Government. As a result, Marquette University is prohibiting the use of motorized scooters on campus property, effective immediately, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Joel Pogodzinski announced.
Under the new policy, all motorized scooters — including the rentable dockless variety operated by companies such as Lime, Bird and Spin — are banned from use on any campus property, including walkways and sidewalks within the campus. The new policy also applies to other personal motorized vehicles, including but not limited to electric bicycles, electric skateboards, hoverboards, Segways, and mopeds.
MUPD will enforce the new policy. Additionally, MUPD will enforce all city ordinances and traffic laws related to motorized scooter operations, particularly their use on public sidewalks, which is strictly prohibited.Christine Wilczynski-Vogel, Associate Dean for External Relations, Events, and Facilities
