The UN predicts the global population will hit 9.6 billion by 2050. Gridlock’s already an issue in young, growing cities, and more personal cars just make things worse. At best, life gets less convenient. Even the automakers recognize that the traditional car business—sell a car to every person with the money to buy one—is on its way out. “Unless we figure out a very different urban transportation model, it’s not gonna work. If you think we’re gonna shove two cars in every car in a garage in Mumbai, you’re crazy,” says Bill Ford, Jr.
Under this circumstance, lots of people give up their usual way of travel- cars. But the problem with moving away from car ownership is that you give up one its biggest upsides: parking at your final destination. Public transit, built around permanent stations, can’t offer that. That’s called the “last mile” problem: How do you get from the subway or bus stop to where you’re actually going when it’s just a little too far to walk?
Folding electric scooters, goofy they may be, are a particularly good answer to the last mile problem. They’re light enough to sling over your shoulder and small enough to fold for stowing in the trunk of your Uber / Tesla / Hyperloop pod. They’re easy to ride just about anywhere, require minimal physical exertion, and are relatively affordable. “They are a low-carbon, affordable, and convenient way to bridge the first and last-mile gap,” Raymond Ong, an assistant professor at the National University of Singapore’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, told Eco-Business.
