29% of U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions are from the Transportation Sector
That's more than any other economic sector in the U.S.
In the U.S., 48% of all car trips are under 3 miles.
We are overusing our cars (and in the process emitting more and more) on trips that could be replaced by bikes, scooters, and public transit.
Our cities and our planet are polluted by the excessive amount of cars on our roads.
It's time for a change.
Light Electric Vehicles (LEVs), like electric bikes and electric scooters, offer a way of getting around that's healthier for our communities and our planet.
However, both businesses and owners still face a number of barriers to making micromobility the best it can be.
Currently, some Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) companies rely on contract workers to collect, charge, and redistribute their fleets each day. Not only does this come with safety concerns, but also workers drive their carbon-powered cars to pick up e-bikes and e-scooters — diminishing the environmentally friendly effects of these products.
From long wait times when charging to expensive costs, Light Electric Vehicles aren't as user friendly as we'd like them to be. The average e-bike costs around $2,500 to $3,500, making this greener, healthier form of mobility inaccessible to many. More so, range anxiety and a lack of convenient charging locations make owning a LEV more difficult than it needs to be.
