Personal Electric Vehicles (Including eScooters) - FAQs

As of August 25, 2023, an updated policy on Personal Electric Vehicles (PEVs) restricts operation of PEVs (electric scooters, electric skateboards, hoverboards, etc.) on most of the Princeton University campus from 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM on weekdays. The original policy, adopted in February 2020, remains in effect until August 25, 2023.

Updated Policy

See Personal Electric Vehicle Policy for the full text of the updated policy, including requirements, prohibitions, and recommendations. Per this policy,

Personal Electric Vehicles (electric scooters, electric skateboards, electric bikes operated in assist mode, hoverboards, etc.) are prohibited to be operated within the zone illustrated in Appendix A weekdays (Monday through Friday) between the hours of 7:30 am to 4:00 pm. While not University property, for personal safety, the University strongly discourages the use of Personal Electric Vehicles on roadways such as Alexander Road and Washington Road, as the road conditions and traffic patterns are not compatible with their use. This policy does not apply to electric wheelchairs, mobility scooters, or other electric mobility devices specifically designed for and used by an individual with a mobility-related disability.
