Over a third of users consider e-scooters to be the most efficient mode of transport in terms of both time and cost: A recent survey has found that over a third of people who use e-scooters (36%) consider them to be the most efficient mode of transportation, saving them both time and money.

The annual global user survey was conducted by Voi Technology, who enable people to hire e-bikes and e-scooters in over 100 towns and cities all over Europe. They sent their survey out via email to all its users who had taken a ride in the past six months and found that 28% of respondents find e-scooters the most useful when in a rush.

Further findings highlight that many members of the public are choosing to use e-scooters over cars, with 42% deciding to use cars less often and opting for  e-scooters instead. In addition, 27% of respondents choose to neglect their cars completely and solely use e-scooters for their commutes.

The survey also asked what peoples’ reasoning is for using e-scooters. Fifty-four percent of respondents said they use them to commute to social events, 43% said to travel to work or higher education and 36% said they use the scooters to navigate across the town or city during work hours for professional reasons.

Finally, the survey also found that there has been a 17% increase in usage of e-scooters among people over 45 years old in the last year - this goes against the perception that this mode of transport is solely for young adults and teenagers.
