More and more people are turning to what some call “Tiny Vehicles” for their commute to work or short errands.
These electric-powered unicycles, scooters, skateboards, and folding bikes are the perfect alternative to getting in a car, hunting for parking, and adding greenhouse gasses to the environment.
Many combine them with mass-transit, making the trip from the train to the office shorter than a bus ride and less sweaty than a bike ride.
Benjamin Schneider of The Atlantic’s Citylab tells us why we should take these silly vehicles seriously.
