Madison regulates moped parking; review of UW moped rules

The Madison Common Council has passed a new ordinance banning moped parking on sidewalks and terraces – the area between the sidewalk and curb – that takes effect Jan. 1. Mopeds will be treated like motorcycles; they cannot park at or near bicycle parking areas. Only designated on- or off-street stall parking will be allowed. UW-Madison requires a moped parking permit and has designated moped parking areas throughout campus.
Mopeds are treated as vehicles on the UW-Madison campus and cannot park at or near bicycle areas or – for safety reasons – in gated parking garages/ramps. Mopeds cannot be operated on sidewalks, disabled access aisles, bike paths or other restricted areas.
