Bird, the electric scooter company, recently started a rental platform in London's Olympic park and now is pushing the program out nationwide.
Bird, who have similar schemes across the globe, want the government to introduce legislation allowing the use of electric scooters which are prohibited under the 1835 Highway Act.
The Department for Transport has indicated it would consider changing the law to allow the electric scooters to be used on public roads.
Riders stand on the scooters while holding onto the handlebars and pull a lever to engage the electric motor.
The scooters are legal in cities across Europe and the United States. It is claimed their use could see people reluctant to use bicycles to leave their cars at home and cut congestion.
According to The Telegraph, the company is holding discussions with Bristol City Council and would like to introduce services in Cambridge and Oxford.
A spokesperson for Bristol City Council said: 'We are due to have initial meetings in the new year with Bird to look at their scooters and sicus how they might fit in as one of the sustainable transport options in Bristol.'
