Looking into ‘last mile’ options for commuting from my house to the bus stop, and then from the bus stop to work (and in reverse) each day. All up, it’s about 2km per segment (8km per day) in order to keep the bus commute reasonable.
Obviously, a bike is a good option, but I’ve seen a number of people riding electric scooters, but I’m having trouble tracking down any information on the ACT Government website about power requirements/limitations. A pedelecs is limited to 250 watts and motor assistance to 25km/h, however, whether this applies to scooters that you don’t pedal is dubious.
Just looking for options, as especially in the morning, the office is uphill from the office, so the bike could make the last mile a more sweaty exercise which I would be keen to avoid if possible (could take a change of clothes each day, but also could be a little impractical.
Any advice on what others do for their commutes, or any light on the legality of these scooters?
