Electric Scooters Offer Gas-Free Option
High gas prices are forcing many of us to look for alternatives to the regular daily commute grind, whether it is car pooling or taking transit or opting to purchase a more energy efficient vehicle.
This week, I dropped by E-Cycle in Vancouver to talk to owners Lance Hui and Gordon World about how high gas prices have affected their electric bicycle and scooter business.
"The global trend these days is towards urban density," said Lance Hui. "As a result, our average daily commute is shrinking which makes our product more applicable now than ever before to many average commuters. Our business has grown by 30 to 40 per cent in the last year alone just due to the price of gas. People are being forced to adjust their way of thinking."
