NerdWallet: Hate those scooters? You’re missing out

In the rush to demonize electric scooters as dangerous nuisances, perhaps we’re missing an opportunity. Transportation experts say scooters could be part of a solution to relieve urban congestion and address global warming. As well, scooters could help riders save money and arrive at the office without needing to hit the showers.

For example, say you have an important meeting that’s 3 miles away, but city streets are jammed with motionless cars. Uber or Lyft would also sit in traffic and could easily cost $15. Instead, you rent a nearby electric scooter for $1 to start and 15 cents a minute.
