Scooter Parking


Scooters and mopeds may not be parked in bicycle racks, on the boardwalk, or on sidewalks in Rehoboth Beach.


A scooter has two wheels, a step-through chassis, and is powered by a motor; this includes mopeds. Motorcycles, motorized skateboards, motorized wheelchairs, and tripeds are NOT scooters.

All scooters must have a permit to park on city streets and in parking lots:

  • Beginnng the Friday before Memorial Day through the second Sunday after Labor Day.
  • seven days a week, 24 hours per day unless paying at a parking meter.

Scooter Parking Permits

  • Permits are $40 for the season.
  • Scooter permits are sold only at the Parking Department, located at 1 City Hall Drive, behind 30 Lake Avenue.
  • Permits must be affixed to the front of scooters, preferably on one of the forks.
  • Wherever possible the rear wheel should be placed against the curb.

Scooter Parking Areas

  • end of most beach blocks
