At the unveiling of Lyft’s new Ottawa hub the company’s market manager says it hopes to offer e-scooters in the future.

“We think that it’s a very important part of our multi-model strategy, to have cars, have scooters and have bicycles up here, so we’re absolutely looking into the bylaws for that,” said Rob Woodbridge with Lyft Canada.

Under the current provincial legislation e-scooters "do not meet any federal or provincial safety standards for on-road use,” according to the Ontario Ministry of Transportation
