So what are the best options to survive a “rush hour peaks” outbreak? Let’s look at the list:
1. Invest on an electric scooter
E-scooters run a speed cap of 10mph and can cover two to four miles of travel. This makes them run faster than e-bikes. That said, e-scooters can be dangerous, which is why they are only allowed in private lands in the UK, but with high-visibility clothes and larger wheels, safety can be improved.
2. No parking? No problem
Vehicle owners are unlikely to use private cars for daily commuting as the traffic grows bigger, so people might use bikes or motorcycles instead. And with that kind of condition, an app that allows people to rent in-car parks might do the trick. Over 300 car parks are going to be changed completely into scooter and bicycle areas, according to Just Park’s CEO Anthony Eskinazi.
3. Grab a cab
The pandemic doesn’t stop the cab drivers from accepting calls from passengers. Companies like Uber supplies the drivers are fully equipped with protective gear such as face masks and hand gloves. They are also required to clean the insides of the cars such as the window and seats in between passengers. Lastly, Uber plans to advise the drivers to take and upload selfies to check if they are wearing masks during the ride.
4. Flying taxis
How will you get back to the office if there are no other options? Flying taxis may sound like a good idea, but not for now. Out of 175 drone taxi designs, none are operational in any country. According to Dr. Steve Wright of the University of the West of England, all we can do for now is wait, as the coronavirus will likely slow down their development rather than improve it.
True or False:
