How to pick the right micromobility vehicle for your commute

January 18, 2022

Are you heading back to the office but you’re not comfortable taking mass transit yet? This is an excellent opportunity to take advantage of micromobility vehicles for your commute. However, if you are new to e-bikes, e-scooters, and other types of vehicles, it can be confusing to choose the right vehicle. Here is some information on what types of micromobility vehicles may be available for you and why you would try it.

If your commute has a short distance, there are a wide range of micromobility options. Consider choosing an e-scooter, e-moped, or e-bike. They are logical choices for people who navigate shorter distances to get to work and have plenty of benefits for riders, including being portable, easy-to-use, and affordable.

Riding an e-scooter or e-bike also means you have to think about the comfort of the vehicle. The handlebars, deck, and tires are all important. Plus, the seat of the vehicle will give you good posture for a smooth ride.

If you are renting a micromobility vehicle, you’ll most likely check if there is enough power for your commute, both for mileage per battery charge and speed to keep up with traffic. You’ll also want to consider safety needs. E-scooters and e-bikes should have headlights, taillights, high beams, and brake lights. The scooter also needs a bell and good brakes, just like a car. And finally, make sure you wear your helmet no matter the distance.

Are you ready to have your employees try e-scooters, e-mopeds, and other types of micromobility transportation? Edenred has several options that also include bike-sharing, corporate shuttles, and more. For some services, we offer discounts through partnerships with micromobility providers.
