Way You Think Of ScootersScooters are growing in popularity and there’s a good reason why. The new scooter designs completely revolutionize what you think an electric scooter should be. These scooters are faster, have a more streamlined design, and can travel longer on a single charge. Kids (and some adults) are embracing the trend and using electric scooters for fun, play, and transportation.

One of the latest and greatest electric scooters on the market is the Pulse Charger. Its motor is stronger than most other electric scooters of its type and can run the longest, 40 minutes, on just one charge. Thicker, more durable wheels can handle more surfaces, even the rough concrete of the city. The Pulse Charger scooter is great for riding all over the place.

Kids are loving it for its speed and fun ride so much that they are using it to travel everywhere they are allowed to. Adults can ride too.

Scooters For Students

Posted on: April 26th, 2013 by Pulse No Comments

Scooters For StudentsAt colleges across the country, an increase in the number of scooters and motorcycles parked on campus has been noted. It seems that many students are taking advantage of the cost efficient benefits of these small vehicles. Because scooters cost so much less than a car to fill up, it often more than makes up for the costs of parking on campus. Times are tough for everyone and college students are no exception.

Some colleges are taking notice of the increasing trend and are offering on campus scooter service for students who opt to travel this way. College moped shops offer scooter sales with financing, scooter rentals, roadside service, and accessories. Not only do students save money by commuting to campus on a scooter, they enjoy cheaper parking rates and better parking spots on campus that save them time. Scooters can travel at speeds ranging from 40-80mph, so getting to class on time is never an issue. The only drawback is cold or rainy weather, but even in those instances there are buses, public transportation, or carpool options available. Overall, the benefits of scooter riding for college students make it all worthwhile. College officials expect to see a continued increase in scooter ownership in the coming years.

Electric Scooter Dealers Offer Alternatives To Driving A Car

Posted on: April 23rd, 2013 by Pulse No Comments

Alternatives To Driving A CarGas prices are rising fast and continue to show no signs of stopping. The cost of living is rising as well, so many of us are looking for ways to cut down on expenses in any way we can. Driving a car is one of the daily activities we can limit and perhaps end up saving money on. If your daily commute is only a mile or two each way, then think about fuel efficient alternatives.

Many choose to ride public transportation. It’s a choice that will cost you less, but you often spend a lot of extra time waiting for a bus or train, or arriving at your destinations late. Riding public transportation is also great because it takes a lot of the stress out of commuting. While your bus or train is making its way to the destination, you can spend that time reading, listening to music or otherwise relaxing.

If you need to be in control of the transportation you use daily, a motorcycle or electric scooter could be the right choice. They use far less fuel than a car and are good for making your way through traffic. Motorcycles and scooters are best for short distance commutes though, and the proper safety gear should always be worn. Electric scooter dealers will also be able to tell you about non electric, body powered scooters that are growing in popularity these days. These scooters now come in adult sizes and are great for making local trips quickly and efficiently. You’ll experience the city in a whole new way and meet people in your neighborhood while riding a scooter. That’s just not possible to do with a car. Scooters are fun, fast, and easy when it comes to getting around.

The Spiritual Side Of Riding A Bike Or Scooter

Posted on: April 19th, 2013 by Pulse No Comments

Spiritual RidingPeople who opt to ride a bicycle, motorcycle, or scooter are often quite passionate about their transportation. Making the decision to give up on driving a car and choosing an alternative mode of transportation is a deliberate action. Ask anyone who has done this and they’ll be sure to have an interesting back story as to why.

Every year at a cathedral in New York City, bicyclists, scooter riders, and even children with wagons gather to have their wheels blessed. For many, the occasion marks the start of the riding season and gives them a sense of peace and safety as they once again take to the streets. And those streets can be mean, especially in New York City.

But these bike and scooter enthusiasts claim that their way of riding is the only way to truly experience the city and that it’s akin to a spiritual experience for them. For some of these riders, cars are the enemy and they would never go back to using the gas guzzling monsters. Other riders are less fervent about hating cars, but still say they would never give up their wheels. The riding experience surpasses any other means of transportation.

What The Best Electric Scooters Have In Common

Posted on: April 15th, 2013 by Pulse No Comments

Best Electric ScootersIf you’re in the market for a scooter, electric or otherwise, it’s important to keep a few things in mind. Chances are you’re ready to buy a scooter because you’re sick of rising gas prices and want to do something to save some money. Many who choose to ride a scooter as their main mode of transportation are concerned about their impact on the environment, and want to do something to lessen that impact. If this sounds like you then do a little research first to find out which are the best electric scooters for your lifestyle.

Motorized scooters are popular for city dwellers all over the world because they’re small, fast, and need little fuel to get going. These scooters work well for traveling by street only and for shorter distances. They still require gas to run, but at much less amounts than a vehicle would. If you’re concerned about carbon emissions, a motorized scooter still contributes some air pollution. It may not be as much as a vehicle, but it’s still a significant amount. IF that bothers you, think about purchasing an electric scooter.

These scooters require no fuel, just a charge from an electric source. Electric scooters only travel up to 10 mph, so you don’t get the same speed as you would with a motorized model. Still, electric scooters are great for short trips around your city or neighborhood. Whether you choose an electric or motorized model, you’ll notice a significant difference in the amount you spend on gas and the pollution you are producing to travel each day.

Green Transportation And How It Can Fit Into Your Life

Posted on: April 4th, 2013 by Pulse 1 Comment

Green TransportationAs more Americans look for ways to cut down on the cost of everyday living as well as live in a greener, more environmentally responsible way, transportation is one of the things that first comes to mind. Living in a metropolitan area usually provides you with several options for getting around. It’s easy enough to hail a cab, take a subway, or simply walk to your destination. However in many cities, public transportation is not so convenient. In places like that, you may have to rely on other alternatives, like scooters, if you’re one of the many looking to reduce your carbon footprint and also save a penny or two.

Electric and human-powered scooters are increasing in popularity for city dwellers who need quick, convenient transportation around town. Many are also choosing rideshares for regular, daily transportation to and from work or school. There is some debate over which method creates less pollution but no matter which you choose, in the end you’ll be making a positive impact. With so many choices available for getting around in modern cities, it’s a lot easier to lead a responsible, environmentally conscious lifestyle.

Would More Scooter Friendly City Design Help Or Hinder?

Posted on: April 1st, 2013 by Pulse No Comments

Scooter FriendlyThis is a dilemma that we are starting to face in today’s reality of traffic congestion and over population of cities around the nation and world for that matter.  Would making cities more scooter friendly help decrease the issues of traffic congestion that seem to be bogging down the cities and property of large metropolitan areas like San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York?

Sources say that increasing the availability to ride scooters safely would decrease the congestion we all experience on the highways and freeways and would certainly decrease the eco-footprint that we all make when we drive large SUVs and vehicles that emit carbon monoxide into the atmosphere.

Electric scooters would certainly help decrease all the problems that we experience because of the overuse of automobiles.  An electric scooter would be able to get you to the train or bus that can get you to work, and still it would be mobile enough that it would not hinder your daily routine.

This is a situation that should be strongly considered moving forward because the reliance on gas and oil in this country has reached an all time high, and doesn’t seem to be ebbing off anytime soon.
