There are no restrictions in the Republic of Armenia, except for the traffic rules, for electric scooters and bicycles. You can drive on roads and sidewalks. But safer - on bike paths and in parks.

bike paths

There are 6 bike lanes in Yerevan.

First bike path

The first of them covers the Ring Boulevard (Yeritasardutyan Park). It goes from the intersection of Moskovyan Street and Mesrop Mashtots Avenue to the monument to Zoravar Andranik. The cycle path is 2.5 km long and 1.5 m wide. It occupies part of the sidewalk. This is inconvenient: pedestrians interfere with the passage.

In the park, next to the Cathedral of St. Gregory the Illuminator is a free skate park. In it, you can also ride a bike and scooter at any time of the day. Most often, children ride on the playground.

Second bike path

The longest bike path in Yerevan is 10 km long. Route: Matenadaran - France Square - Sayat-Nova Avenue - Freedom Square - Northern Avenue - Abovyan Street - Republic Square - Vazgen Sargsyan Street - Khorenatsi Street - Tigran Mets Avenue - Artsakh Avenue - Erebuni Street - Erebuni Museum-Reserve.

The return route is different. From Tigran Mets Avenue you need to turn onto Khanjyan Street. Using the bike lane is inconvenient. The path is interrupted, motorists do not pay attention to the allocated lane, the transitions from the sidewalk to the highway are unexpected and not obvious.

Other bike paths

Also, bike paths and special road signs appeared on:

  • Marshal Baghramyan Avenue;
  • Mesrop Mashtots Avenue
  • Surb Grigor Lusavorich Street;
  • Yeznik Koghbatsi street.

Unfortunately, this does not make routes safer due to cars.


For cycling and scootering, locals recommend these locations:

  • Tsitsernakabed;
  • park named after Tumanyan (Tumo);
  • English park;
  • Children's park;
  • Komitas park;
  • Haghtanak park;
  • Northern Avenue;
  • Botanical Garden.


There are 60 official bike racks in Yerevan. Most of them are in parks. Bicycles and scooters for sharing remain not only in parking lots, but also on sidewalks in crowded places.

In public transport

Transport bikes and scooters buses and trolleybuses Can. But it is difficult to do this: public transport is often clogged with passengers. IN metro you need to pay 100 drams (one token); no restrictions on the size of the vehicle

Attitude towards scooters and cyclists

The law does not regulate where electric scooters should ride: amateurs ride in places that are convenient for them. Some of them do not comply with safety regulations.

Therefore, pedestrians and drivers have a negative attitude towards scooters. Cyclists are more respected: they follow traffic rules.
