Potential analysis of e-scooters for commuting paths
Published on Zenodo
The mobility needs of society are constantly increasing, leading into congested urban areas. New mobility concepts such as e-scooters can have a traffic-reducing effect. Especially commuting paths, which generally stay within a consistent distance, are rather short and manageable through an intermodal travel chain in combination with public transport, are showing a big potential for the use of e-scooters. For intermodality, the focus is above all on mastering the first- and last-mile. E-scooters definitely offer individual benefits to some people, in case of the travel time. An ecological perspective also proposes a reduction of CO2-equivalents for some users.
