The future of affordable living in Australia
Micro-mobility encompasses lightweight transportation such as e-bikes, electric scooters, and skateboards, offering a solution to long commutes and skyrocketing transportation costs. Mike Day highlights the potential savings by switching from car ownership to e-bikes, and their positive impact on reducing carbon emissions.
But the road to micro-mobility success isn't without its challenges. Day emphasizes the need for dedicated lanes and integration into existing road networks. Forward-thinking governments and councils are eager to embrace these ideas, but safety concerns and infrastructure improvements are key hurdles.
