Metro Manila is widely known as the country’s National Capital Region (NCR). It is the center of arts, business, culture, education, and government. It is the region where transactions take place and most of the Filipinos’ livelihood and business opportunities are located. This is the reason why people from afar travel back and forth taking different modes of transportation. Some Filipinos would use their app-based vehicles like Uber and Grab Taxis since it can provide them a fast way of locating available vehicles wherever they want to go. But because of its metric-based fare, it makes it quite costly that’s why another alternative taken is the ticketing. This is another mode of transportation where Filipinos buy a cheap priced ticket in using MRTs and LRTs. It’s much faster than cabs but unfortunately too crowded. That’s why some Filipinos felt using their privately-owned vehicle through varying to different prices. Some would give a thought that the pricier the vehicle is, the more it can let them go further with smooth riding. These modes of transportation may have been useful yet it still cannot avoid the irritating road problems such as traffics, congestions and pollution. Approximately, 85% of air pollution comes from vehicles and you don’t want to live your life in a stagnant and dangerous mode.
The emergence of Micro mobility has been made as another alternative in solving the above-mentioned problems. Micro mobility is small transportation propelled either by humans or electric motors. Examples of these are bicycles, e-bikes, skates, skateboards, and mini-scooters or electric scooters. Moreover, these transportations are far more convenient, affordable and time-efficient. It helps you prevent from getting caught in traffic jams. Aside from that, you won’t be risking yourselves in diseases due to pollution because of its eco-friendly feature. Worry less with your first mile and last mile travel as well because Micro mobility is innovatively made to have an easier use for both motorist and commuters. Many countries have been switching to micro-mobility because of its benefits. Take for example the three countries having greater road problems-US, China and India. These countries are also known for their busy roads. That is why the US and India have been using scooters as an alternative. China, on the other hand, has been using bicycles.
In the Philippines, a transportation company called EcoRide has been promoting the use of e-scooters or electric kick scooters which are made to suffice the needs of Filipinos in avoiding traffic congestions. It is also beneficial because it reduces pollution plus it is convenient to use. It has a built-in battery and a honeycomb tire that never gets flat every time you use it. What’s more, it is much more affordable than your typical high-end vehicles. It has adapted to modernization where we face an era dependent on technology. It is also safe to use.
The growing needs of using transportation have led to various alternatives which later on becomes a problem. These have been given answers through the use of Micro-mobility, a small transportation vehicle which provides convenience, affordability, and time-efficiency. Many countries have been switching to Micro-mobility. So, what are you waiting for? Get up and find yourself a suitable micro-mobility! Make your time free all the time!
