The Best Commute: How An Electric Scooter Helps with the Last Mile

The Best Commute: How An Electric Scooter Helps with the Last Mile

Picture this: You’ve done it. Another productive day is in the books, and now it’s time to make your way home. You’re tired from the work day, and your dread the last mile of your commute — the part where you have to walk home. You ride the bus as far as it will go on your route, but it still drops you off a little further from home than you would like. That’s not the ideal ending to a long day in the office, is it?

Or, maybe it’s time to meet friends on a weekend, but the weather is horrific. We’re talking huge downpours of rain, cold and blustery wind, and gray clouds that threaten the worst is yet to come. You really don’t want to trudge through the yuck in your rain boots, do you?

That “last mile” on your commute can be difficult, especially in the middle of winter or when ride share prices are higher than normal. You’re doing your best to live an intentional life that promotes reducing your carbon footprint and saving a little money along the way. This is where the Uber Scuuter comes in; not only is it an electric scooter, but it’s also a foldable scooter that makes for easy transporting and the perfect solution to the last mile of your ride.

Compact and foldable

The popularity of portable scooter is gaining traction, and it’s easy to see why. With a sleek, lightweight design that folds into a compressed package, it is an easy choice. Sure, this mode of transportation is great for recreation, but it makes a huge difference on the daily commute as well.

Since it is so portable, you can take it wherever you go, which includes the transportation on your route. The scooter can fit in a corner in an office or cube and charge while you’re working, and it will fit right beside you on a bus or train. Once you hop off your train and are ready to use it, simply unfold the scooter, turn it on, and you’re on your way. 

Additionally, this electric, foldable scooter features military-grade tires. What does that have to do with the last mile of your commute? Whether you are traveling on grass, gravel, cement, or a dirt road, you can rely on the Uber Scuuter to get you where you need to go on that last leg of your commute. We won’t try to guess where your adventures will take you, but we’re pretty certain that our scooter will get you there. Unless you’re traveling through quicksand, which we strongly advise you not to do.

A Great Option in the City

Having a wealth of transportation options is one of the joys of living in the city. Sometimes though, the subway or the bus routes only take you part of the way, which means ride sharing or walking the rest of the route. During rush hour, on holidays, or when an event is in town, finding a rideshare can be a challenge, which means you could be waiting for a while or have to pay higher-than-normal fees. Driving in the city is its own challenge, which is why many city dwellers prefer public transit options. Likewise, walking can take time and energy.

City life is made for non-car commuting, and an electric scooter is a great option to fill the gaps on your commute. It is portable enough to take with you wherever you need to go, and it’s always there for you, so you don’t have to wait. With a ride range of 27 miles, it doesn’t matter how far off the public transit route your destination is — it’s never too far away (well, as long as it’s within 27 miles).

The Ultimate Time-Saver

Walking is a great form of exercise, but if you’re running late or dealing with crowded sidewalks, it can be a bit of a hassle. Having a scooter to accommodate the last leg of your commute can save a ton of time. With speeds up to 15 miles per hour, a scooter can get you home earlier, which means you have more time in your day.

Let’s say, for example, you have an appointment. You plan to rideshare the rest of the way, but traffic is dense and slow-moving. Ridesharing includes variables at play that means you’re taking a chance when it comes to being on time. When all goes well, ridesharing is a great option, but if traffic is thick or there’s construction, etc., you might be late to your appointment anyway. A foldable scooter gets you to that appointment fast and you can bypass the hassles of the roadways.

Money-Saving Benefits

Designed with commuters in mind, a foldable scooter shaves the cost off your commute over time. You pay for the scooter once, rather than paying for a rideshare multiple times. You don’t have to worry about buying gas because the scooter is powered by electricity. Yes, you will need to perform regular maintenance to ensure your scooter stays in tip-top shape, but the financial commitment is much less than that of a car.

Allows You to Add in a Little Flexibility

Have you ever been working away on the day’s tasks and suddenly remembered that you’ve run out of a specific ingredient for tonight’s dinner, or you need to pick up a birthday gift for a friend before the weekend? It’s happened to the best of us.

Maybe the grocery store is a bit out of reach on your way home, though, and rideshare during rush hour just isn’t your idea of a good time. Having a portable scooter fills the need in this case. You can easily get off your train, pop on the scooter, and ride over to that grocery store quickly and without hassle.

Soon, having an electric scooter to accommodate your commute will be as natural as having a train pass. It gives you autonomy over that last mile and has the ability to save you time, money, and sanity.
