In 2021, Roll Scooters were awarded a permit to operate their shared e-Scooters in Cochrane on a two-year pilot program. In March of 2022, the Cochrane welcomed back pilot project with Canadian company, Roll.  In June, e-bikes were added to the Cochrane-wide fleet. The service extends into the communities of Sunset Ridge, Bow Ridge, Jumping Pound Ridge, Bow Meadows, Cochrane Heights and others in-between. 

The pilot project supports the Town’s environmental and transportation goals by limiting carbon emissions, reducing traffic congestion, and minimizing transportation gaps. The pilot will be at no cost to the Town, with a portion of the revenue from each trip donated to the Town for micro-mobility related projects, including building and maintaining protected bike lanes.
