WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE URBAN MOBILITY? 

Scooters, skates and skateboards are becoming a common site in the urban landscape alongside walkers, runners and cyclists. As these means of transport become increasingly popular, policies for sustainable transport that respects the environment are essential. Interested in getting on board with urban mobility? Here are some things to think about.

URBAN MOBILITY IS BOOMING 

Good news! Polluting transport is less and less popular in the city! Although an absolute must until recently, cars, motorbikes and mopeds are now giving way to new modes of transport. Cities are waking up to the environmental issues linked to pollution and are encouraging residents to use public transport (underground, bus and tram). And that's not all. To leave them free to get around town (commuting, travelling to leisure destinations, or getting to sports and cultural activities) without having to rely on crowded public transport with its wacky timetables, more and more people are resorting to walking, cycling and skating.

Cities are transforming and adapting so that we can travel around in a more environmentally friendly way!

SUSTAINABLE URBAN MOBILITY: ECO-FRIENDLY TRANSPORT LEADS THE WAY!

THE IDEAL SOLUTION FOR ALL: SCOOTERS 

Scooters are easy to use, practical, and accessible to everyone - the perfect solution for getting around town. Designed for covering short to medium distances, urban scooters not only mean leaving your car in the garage but also help you avoid the jams and get some exercise! After all, respecting the environment and looking after our health are pretty popular aims. Another benefit of scooters is that they can be folded, meaning you can store your scooter easily at home and use public transport if necessary, without taking up space.

SKATEBOARDS: THE KID-FRIENDLY, ECO-FRIENDLY MEANS OF TRANSPORT 

Skateboarding has enjoyed a major comeback in recent years among both youngsters and their parents, and even their pets. But skateboarding around town requires a bit of practice. Obviously, before using your skateboard to get around, you need to be able to balance!

But once you've got the hang of the basics, skateboards are the easiest means of sustainable transport to carry with you: just tuck your board under your arm and you're good to go on the underground, in the bus or into the office!

SKATING IS PERFECT FOR GETTING AROUND TOWN

If you've already got the hang of roller skating as a child, then inline skates are the logical next step! If not, it'll take a bit of practice before you can use them as an alternative form of transport.

They're the most manoeuvrable alternative for getting around town and the fastest for weaving through the crowds. The only downside is that you need to remember to take a pair of shoes with you, otherwise you'll have to wear your skates all day…

CONCLUSION

What with pollution, traffic jams and the need to get some exercise, urban mobility offers the ideal solution. Eco-friendly transport is accessible to everyone and will no doubt continue to invade our cities.
