We'd all rather be somewhere else when sitting in traffic, confined on the bus or being charged for an expensive taxi.
Scooting parts of your journey makes the most of your commute, speeding up short trips, giving you a workout, saving time and money, helping the environment and ultimately leaving you feeling great.
Why you should scoot your commute:
Spending money on petrol, parking, taxis and transport fares can add up to a headache. Save money and have fun scooting parts of your journey. Once you've got a scooter your trips are free! You'll miss the traffic, avoid nasty parking fines and choose the route you want. Use those extra dollars on something you really need or on yourself.. we won't tell.
You can take your Micro scooter with you anywhere. They're compact, accessible and light weight. Don't sweat struggling with a bike on public transport or worry about it being left outside.
A quick press of a button and Micro Scooters fold up nice and compact. It can easily sit with you on the bus or train and stored in the overheads. Take it into work keeping it safely tucked under your desk and ready dash out of the office when you need. If you think carrying it might be an issue, we've got you covered with carry bags and straps.
“The scooters are good for going out on during lunch and going to external meetings as you don’t need to spend time finding somewhere to lock it up on arrival, as you would with a bike, you can just take it in with you.” - Wellington City Council
Get fit while having fun
Change your commute into a fun workout on the go giving you a burst of activity to start the day. Scooting burns 300 calories an hour, more than cycling. It helps tones and strengthen muscles without the hassle of getting to the hot stuffy gym. Including exercise in your day will keep you active and boost your brain function to stay focused on the job.
