COVID-19 pandemic has completely transformed the way we travel in the city. And certainly, it is gradually remodelling the mobility industry too. Essential travels are more dependant on personal transport rather than public ones and people are using bikes, e-scooters more than cars.
A report by Bike and Scooter Rental market estimates the global bike and scooter rental market to rise to nearly $7 billion by 2026. At the same time, France is also encouraging people to cycle to keep pollution levels low once lockdown restrictions end. The country also plans to invest €20 million to develop and subsidise two-wheel travel, which, like Britain, will include temporary bike lanes.
