Signs offer reminder that Medical Center plaza is no-vehicle zoneDec. 6, 2018, 11:15 AM
Signs have been posted around the Medical Center plaza noting that the area, which is designed for pedestrians passing between VUMC buildings, is a no-vehicle zone.
The use of electric scooters has grown rapidly as competing scooter rental companies Bird and Lime have entered the market, resulting in more vehicles traveling through pedestrian areas, endangering the safety of patients, families and employees.
The new signs, posted by VUMC Parking and Transportation Services, note that all vehicles, including bicycles, scooters, skateboards, and mopeds must be walked, not ridden, through the area.
Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant mobility assistance devices have always been, and continue to be, allowed on the Plaza.
