It’s here…the dreaded dilemma every student faces at the beginning of the school year: how will I get to class? After more than a year of virtual learning, the majority of students across the world are heading back to class in-person. Many students and parents have had some time off from facing this common commuting conundrum. Not all students have the luxury of bringing a car to campus with them, making getting from point A to B another challenge in an already stressful schedule. The best solution? An electric bike. It’s the perfect transportation alternative to avoid walking miles to class, running basic errands, or dealing with traffic nightmares – and choosing the right model is crucial. DYU makes fashionable city ebikes for just about every street and lifestyle, including an excellent selection for school commuting.
Here are all the ways heading back-to-school on a DYU Bike will help you ace the school year!
Benefits of Riding an Electric Bike on Campus
You have a full schedule on your plate, and you want to make the most of every moment. An e-bike can help you take charge of your life and maximize your school experience. Here are a few ways your e-bike will improve your daily life:
- Make it to class on time, every time:Traffic is a killer for commuters, and the long walk from the dorms or parking lot to class can be just as challenging. E-bikes make it easy to pick up speed while giving you the flexibility to transition between roads and bike paths, leading to a quicker commute every time. All DYU Bikes go up to 25km/h with pedal assist, which is efficient and safe. You’re sure to never miss the homeroom bell while riding one of these to school.
- Skip the parking hassle:E-bikes lock to any bike rack or post outside your building, meaning you won’t have to worry about expensive parking passes, costly tickets or towing fees. Plus, you’ll save tons of time you would otherwise spend searching the entire lot for a decent parking spot.
- Reduce your gas usage:E-bikes have two power sources — electricity and you — making them a cost-effective and environmentally friendly transportation option for any student. Get yourself an e-bike to cruise around campus and save some extra cash, rather than sending it down the drain at the gas pump.
- Earn extra money:Looking for a part-time gig while in school? Get a job as a delivery driver with an online service or your local sandwich shop to make tips without the hassle of insurance or fluctuating fuel prices. DYU R1 e-bike with torque sensor makes your trip fast while allowing you do some exercise – including getting a late night pizza.
- Eliminate Rising Uber Charges:Rideshare is a common way to commute around and outside of campus when you don’t have a car. But using Lyft or Uber every day adds up. Not to mention, prices keep on going up due to a scarcity in drivers. Save money with an e-bike and never second-guess that extra trip. Grocery run? Check! Dinner with friends? Check! Shopping trip? Check
- Capitalize on student or teacher discounts:DYU Bikes offers discounts for students and educators at every level. You may be eligible to receive discount from our sales, so contact us to have a discount.
