The future of city travel – the electric scooter.
With the start of a new decade certain perspectives are put in hindsight and new ideas are brought forwards, with the increased scrutiny of daily lifestyles and their contributions towards climate change, many people are looking at alternatives to their daily travel needs, greener and less wasteful solutions than driving. This is no less the case in the UK, with taxes being introduced in cities and congestion charges and even car bans being planned for future town centres. This begs the question of how people will travel to work in a world that won’t let them drive, and in situations where public transport just won’t cut it. Is the electric scooter the answer?
Many cities are grappling with solutions to the issues of commuters and the inability to get to work without a car, it being either too far to drive or bike, arriving to work sweaty during the summer isn’t ideal, and with record temperatures each year the need for a more efficient and smooth way to travel is necessary and cities and countries are finally starting to realize that E-scooters and electric transport is likely going to be the future.
New York recently announced plans to legalize E bikes and electric scooters in a move that’ll make commuting throughout the city much easier. Similarly with the current outbreak of Coronavirus, the use of E-scooters in the city is rapidly growing as people seek to deliver food and supplies to those who need it without access to a car. Similarly in the UK the government is airing discussions on whether to legalize the use of Ebikes and electric scooters (e-scooters) to ensure people can travel to work and that pollution goals are achieved.
What this essentially means is that now is the perfect time to get an e-scooter or E-bike, it’s new technology that’s going to become integral in the movement of people throughout cities, ontop of that, it’s fun to ride and helps reduce pollution without the cost of an electric car that locks people into fossil fuels.
