Micromobility Could Help UK Function as Lockdowns Ease

As England starts to ease lockdown restrictions and firms start to reopen one of the most important questions is how everyone can safely get to work. Over the weekend the government announced its intention to invest £2 billion in green travel options, which will include electric scooters. These options will be essential to maintain the social distancing rule as public transport capacity is reduced across key services.

As part of the package announced at the government’s press briefing, Transport Minister Grant Shapps revealed plans to fast-track electric scooter trials from next year to next month, with the aim to revolutionize and mature the UK’s public transport landscape and network.

Green Ride, the developer of the innovative high-tech INU foldable electric scooter, supports the government’s initiatives and believes that a key aspect of achieving a new normal will be to embrace micromobility.

As businesses put measures in place to start bringing staff back into work, people will be forced to rethink and adapt their daily commute. While businesses will inevitably enforce social distancing rules in an office environment, the way workers’ commute will also have to change to prevent a second wave of the coronavirus disease.

According to Green Ride the solution to the paradox is the adoption of micromobility, which enables commuters to travel individually, therefore maintaining the social distancing rule, and without harming the environment.

Green Ride founder, Ori Dadoosh,We have seen real advances in electric vehicles over the last few years, and micromobility offers a unique and viable solution to people feeling safe as they return to work. Especially in urban areas, where the daily commute largely consisted of crammed tubes or trains.”

The INU scooter is now in a position to be put into full production and provide a micromobility solution to urban travel which could benefit millions of people, as well as reducing CO2 emissions produced by the transport sector.
