On 26th May 2021 we introduced some new Go Slow and No Go Zones to the BCP area.
While you can hire, ride and park our Beryl vehicles across a large geographical area, some places are more crowded than others. We’re making sure our scooters are safe for all riders, residents and visitors, particularly during the busy summer months.
If you enter one of these zones your scooter will automatically and gradually reduce speed to 3mph. You will need to dismount and walk with your scooter back into the Beryl Zone where you will be able to resume your journey.
When you are leaving a restricted zone, Press the ‘Go’ lever gently to avoid sudden acceleration when back in the Beryl Zone.
The Go Slow and No Go Zones include Christchurch at all times, and Bournemouth and Poole promenade throughout the July and August from 10am-6pm.
You can see the new zones clearly marked in the app:
Beryl Zone: Outlined in pink and visible in-app. Please stay within the Beryl Zone. There's a penalty for parking outside a Beryl Zone, and scooters will be restricted out-of-zone.
Go Slow Zone: Shaded in yellow with a tortoise and clock icon. Scooters will automatically and gradually slow to a reduced speed of 3mph. The clock icon highlights the hours when the restrictions are in place.
No Go Zone: Shaded in black with no entry icon. Scooters entering this zone will gradually slow to 3mph. You will need to walk your scooter back into the Beryl Zone to resume your ride. You will not be able to ride, pause, park or end your journey in this zone.
We will send you a notification to let you know if you are approaching a zone, and a further notification if you enter one. You will not be able to finish your journey in a No Go Zone.
