What is it?
Micromobility refers to machines that enable last mile (or so) trips in urban areas that can replace car trips. These machines are generally small, so take up little road space, are electric, operated by one person, and have a low momentum, meaning they have a low weight and speed (usually capped at 15.5 mph).
Machines included within this definition include: e-cycles, e-scooters, e-cargo cycles, child carrying cycles. Many Micromobility vehicles are offered as public hire vehicles and some are privately owned. Micromobility vehicles can use the current road network without any additional infrastructure development costs, as well as use dedicated cycle infrastructure.
Bikeworks offers consultancy services and training for e-scooters and e-cargo bikes. We train instructors and work with the private and public sector to develop various micromobility schemes. Please get in touch if you’d like to explore micromobility at your organisation.
