The Last Mile: How Micro Mobility Vehicles are Transforming the Way People Move

 

Today there are many options for people to move around the city without having to use an automobile. Micro-mobility vehicles are gaining popularity, and not just from everyday pedestrians looking to go from door to door. Segways and e-scooters are used in tourism, paramedics, the industrial world, and law enforcement.

Chris Szydlowski, CEO of Canada West Segway, and founder of OGO Scooters was on hand for this episode of The Last Mile: Powered by Segway to talk about the changing ways in which people move around.

Why are city municipalities looking at alternatives like Segway products? Szydlowski has an idea.

“They’re facing the same challenges as everyone else is. The cost of vehicles is high, the emissions are high, and the impact on the environment is high,” he said.

Canada recognizes the potential personal electric vehicles can provide, and recently changed laws to make the use of such vehicles more accessible for municipalities.

Szydlowski admits people still have an over-dependency on their automobiles, but he believes that getting over preconceived notions regarding micro mobility vehicles and seeing first-hand how easy they can be to use, will increase these vehicles popularity over time.

Is there one particular city that is leading the way in personal micro-mobility vehicle use? Szydlowski wouldn’t go so far as saying this city was the leader, but Edmonton is leading the charge in Canada when it comes to Segway and e-scooter acceptance.
