- They’re the Future of Urban Transportation
If you hadn’t noticed, electric bikes are becoming all the rage. The global market is expected to reach $79.7 billion by 2026, up from $47 billion just last year. This represents a CAGR of 11.1%, or for those uninitiated a compound annual growth rate. Business is booming and with a global shortage in semiconductors set to limit the supply of both traditional vehicles and electric cars, the urban transportation market will turn to more affordable, accessible, and convenient ways to commute. With urban centers shifting to a carbon-neutral means of existence, it is only natural that the electric mini bike business would thrive. There are many reasons to get excited about this growing transportation sector. In fact, even the shared bike economy is benefiting from this with the NABSA stating that 44% of bikes deployed in 2019 were electric, up from 28% in 2019. But we all know that no one wants to scuttle around the city searching for transportation options. Why not bring your own when they are compact, convenient, and emissions-free?

- You Can Avoid Public Transportation
Did you know traffic congestion costs Americans on average 97 hours and $1,348 per year? Boston is the most congested with about 164 hours lost per year whereas New York City has the slowest ‘last mile’ speeds at 9 Mph, which means it’s faster to ride a bike than to take a bus. You heard that right: in New York City you can travel faster by pedal bike than by public transportation. Face it, urban living can be a nightmare to get around. With an aging public infrastructure and densely populated urban centers, taking public transit can be a time-consuming and claustrophobic experience. However, imagine zipping around taxis and busses in New York City while leaving pedal bike riders in your dust. Being more cost-effective with your time by cutting your commute in half to concerts, sporting events, social gatherings, and more!
