E-Scooter Trials Blasting Off In Milton Keynes
Spin, a Ford-owned micro-mobility company made 100 e-scooter available for the residents in Milton Keynes on a rental basis.
The company announced that it’s an initial local trial of e-scooters, a joint initiative with the UK government, keeping in mind the need for e-scooters to prevent the locals from using public transport.
This is the first market established by the company in the UK after micro-mobility vehicles were legalised in the UK a few weeks back.
The company intends to bring 300 e-scooters on the run by mid-September, with a constant increase in the demand of the e-scooter, and the spreading awareness in the people.
COVID-19 has proved to be the driving force for Spin to undertake this operation in the UK, normalising the use of pilot programs and e-scooters and e-bikes.
Public Education Events By The Company For General Awareness
Spin has been in constant regard with the city council of Milton Keynes to ensure that public safety is the top-notch priority for the company.
The company has been taking all the measures regarding the safety and security of all the people riding the e-scooters. They recently also organised a public education event, an informative event for all those who intend to ride the e-scooters.
This event gave them a detailed insight into how this e-scooter shall work, and what kinds of steps should be taken by them while riding these e-scooters.
The company also plans to organise more of such kind of events to educate and reach out to more number of people and making sure none of them is deprived of the correct information.
People willing to ride these e-scooters will have to download the app on their smartphones, go through all the safety regulations.
The trip costs 0.25 pounds per minute.
The scooters are supposed to be driven on the redways of the town to give access to almost all the prime areas of the town.
Spin Safe Digital, a program that teaches the riders online all the safety rules and regulations before taking their trip.
The riders learn about how to avoid traffic on the roads, how to park their e-scooters and also give them learnings about maintaining constant social distancing in the times of COVID-19.
These e-scooter rides are intended to create clusters and clogs of scooters on the roads which leave no free walkways for the pedestrians, and thus these lessons are a great way to educate people.
The people who take these online lectures are offered a discount of 5 pounds on their ride.
Head Of Europe of the company Mr Felix Petersen mentioned that the company is very excited to introduce first-ever e-scooters in the UK post the legalisation, and the program has also happened to receive an overwhelming response from the audience at the public events.
The company commits on integrating the e-scooters in the UK eco-system of local transport in the coming time and also replace the usage of cars and public transport with these e-scooters to encourage an innovative transport mode, which is cheaper, more accessible and fair to the environment.
Several applications have been submitted across the UK in England, Oxford, Solent and Canterbury to expand the e-scooter community all over.
The company believes that this trial is a step forward towards creating a carbon-negative impact by 2025, replacing all the fuel-based vehicles with electronic vehicles.
These vehicles are a word towards fulfilling sustainable development goals and creating a greener environment.
