The Benefits of Micro-mobility for Cities - Eltis
The concept of micro-mobility is nothing new. In fact, the idea of micro-mobility started with an on-demand bicycle sharing program in Europe in 1975. Decades later, people have re-discovered micro-mobility by upgrading bicycles, kick scooters, and skateboards to their electronic version today. Now, when you hear the word micro-mobility, you think of electric scooters, electric bikes, and electric skateboards, among many others.
However, the benefits of micro-mobility remain the same. The only difference then and now is its impact on cities and people. As populations increase in cities and fuel prices sore, micro-mobility becomes the solution to increasing road congestion challenges and environmental problems. After all, they have proven to be eco-friendly, efficient, and low-cost to operate.
