When it comes to transportation around Tel Aviv, there are a number of alternatives to driving a car. For longer commutes, riding public transportation with Dan or Egged buses helps reduce the amount of pollution.
For shorter commutes, there is the option of going by foot or the ever-popular bicycle.
While the bicycle provides a great combination of health benefits, quick travel, and produces zero emissions, a new method of transportation is becoming popular for both Tel Aviv youth and elderly.
FreeGo electric scooters are becoming more prevalent around Tel Aviv today.
The scooters are powered by electricity and are able to travel up to 20 kilometers before requiring a 5 hour charge.
While using no electricity is more sustainable, FreeGo scooters get solid mileage on a single electric charge and are a fun alternative form of transportation for all ages.
An employee at the FreeGo store on Arlozoroff Street told Green Prophet that the main consumers of the scooters are teenagers and young adults, but a surprising number of elderly are also starting to buy FreeGo scooters.
The younger generation can enjoy the sporty two-wheeled scooters that go up to 35Km/hour and they cannot receive driving tickets for. For the older generations, there are models with seats that are stabilized by three wheels, and have a compartment for transporting goods.
Upon asking an employee at FreeGo about the scooters from an environmental perspective, he said that FreeGo frequents green conventions in Tel Aviv and certainly values contributing a cleaner method of transportation around the city.
If FreeGo scooters can’t give you enough speed, consider an electric road bike, the Zero S.
