Electric scooter—Tiny vehicles, big impacts
Most commuters don't bring much on the way to work -- purses, backpacks or similar.
This makes electric scooters more attractive for short commutes If we take them seriously, this could be a big deal for our city.
This emerging form of transportation is very effective for "first and last mile" travel, such as between home and the nearest train station.
They can also help with short commutes of less than 10 kilometers. In capital cities, an estimated 20% of journeys from home to work are 5-10km.
