As our beloved petrol/diesel vehicles sink slowly in the West, the new breed of electric scooters,
battery-assist bikes, ride shares and private electric vehicles are moving in.
The future is Electric.
- Ride sharing autonomous BEVs [Battery-electric vehicles]
- Electric bikes or scooters for shopping or commuting.
- Getting frocked up for a night out? It’s a ride-share or a single hire of a car that turns up silently at your door and delivers you home. No longer do you need the expense of owning, running and parking your own car.
- And guess what; you can’t get DUI when the car drives itself.
Better get used to a whole lot more initials and acronyms folks, ‘cos they’re coming at ya!
VMT - Vehicle miles travelled.
VMT FEE - Payment for
TOD - Transport Oriented Development.
BEV - Battery- electric vehicle.
DRS - Dynamic Ride Sharing
With the new drive into electrification under way, we will need a new way of thinking.
