Recently the UK government announced they they were going to FAST-TRACK the legalisation of eScooters in the United Kingdom. The green and fun way to travel around a town or city, or commute to work or even go shopping is about to get legal. With the current government ring-fencing £90 million pounds to promote and sustain the infrastructure and technologies that are needed provide socially distanced and Eco-friendly travel, 2020 is indeed going to be the year of the electric scooter revolution in the UK.
Researchers from Berkeley have shown that the money spent renting an electric scooter from a multinational company for between 60-90 days is a roughly equal sum needed to buy a similar eScooter outright.
Two questions you may have if you are thinking of joining this fun and environmentally friendly mode of transport are, should I rent a shared scooter or should I buy an eScooter of my own? Of course this is a decision only you can make. There are pro’s and con’s to each. Below you will find how the rental (or sharing) model works based on one persons video experience of the generic scooters currently in Europe.
Whichever electric scooter route you may take, be assured that you are joining a green revolution already well established in over 100 cities around the World.
