How to Use Shared Scooters and Public Transit During the COVID-19 Pandemic

+ more

During a period of uncertainty like the one brought about by the spread of COVID-19, or coronavirus, it’s critical to take every precaution possible to keep yourself and others safe.

To that end, many are choosing to forgo traditional public transportation solutions like buses, trains and subway lines as part of their effort to avoid crowded places and practice social distancing.

Shared scooter rental solutions can aid in these efforts, providing an alternate mode of transportation that helps you maintain efficiency and commute effectively while still practicing proactive, protective measures.

Tips for Safely Commuting with a Shared Scooter

While utilizing an individual rental scooter is safer than electing to travel by crowded public methods by default, there are still steps you can take to ensure your experience is as safe as possible.

These include:

  • Wipe down the scooter with alcohol or disinfecting wipes prior to use
  • Wear gloves when riding to avoid direct contact with shared surfaces
  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after your ride is complete
  • Wipe the handlebars after use, as well, to do your part to protect others

Successfully Utilizing Public Transportation When Needed

Should you need to utilize public transportation during this global pandemic, there are still measures you can take to ensure you protect yourself.

You can:

  • Avoid touching high-traffic surfaces when possible
  • If possible, take less-crowded train cars and buses, even at the expense of time
  • Wash your hands and carry disinfecting wipes, hand sanitizer and more for added protection and consistency
