Do you have a scooter or folding bicycle?

You can bring scooters and folding bikes onto the bus or métro (except for gas-powered scooters, which are prohibited) as long as they do not interfere with the movement of passengers or employees and does not compromise the safety of people or vehicles. Folding bikes must remain folded at all times while on public transit.
