Vancouver Hopes Scooter Buyers Go Electric, Not Gas
The City of Vancouver loves electric scooters and hopes more drivers will ditch their cars in favour of them. But they hope residents avoid gas-fuelled versions.
"While scooters are a really fuel-efficient means of transportation, their air pollution, what we call common air contaminants, [is] really quite bad, like 10 times worse than a car," said Sean Pander, the city's climate change program manager.
The city is working with developers to explore the cost and safety codes involved in electrifying parkades in new condominiums. They want to determine, for example, the cost of providing electricity to 15 per cent of the stalls.
