A glimpse of the dawn of micro-mobility vehicles

After the wave of urban mobility, micro mobility is set to take everyone by storm. Urban mobility gave us the outline of the new infrastructural developments that we should be thinking about, the new areas we should be exploring. Under the same, bicycles as an alternative to heavy vehicles for public transport was accepted and appreciated.

Megacities worldwide are facing an epidemic of congestion and pollution caused by rapid urbanization that is increasing gridlock and putting severe pressure on public transportation systems. 46% of traffic is caused by cars on trips less than three miles and micro-mobility solutions could help alleviate a significant portion of this last-mile gridlock. The main concerns with micro-mobility vehicles and e-scooters, in particular, are safety and whether the city’s current infrastructure can support the massive influx of these vehicles. Common questions include “How do we keep the e-scooters from being parked where we don’t want them?” and “How do we modify our bike lanes to keep e-scooter riders and bike riders safe while also keeping enough sidewalk space for pedestrians?”

Most of the large micro-mobility companies have been working with cities to address these concerns including using electronic geo-zones to prevent riders from either riding in an unsafe area or parking in an area where the city doesn’t want them to park. These are the scenarios mostly in the US but in countries like India where the demand rate is quite on the higher side. Hence all the factors give rise to a new curiosity of what next? Miracle by Yulu is the answer to the question. It is the future of India. The Miracle is a smart, affordable and eco-friendly way to get wherever you need to go. The light and compact body ensure that parking is not an issue, and the 25 Km/hour speed limit lets you ride safely without a license. The vehicles unlock easily via Bluetooth, and a GPS tracker ensures users find a ride easily. Baggage space, a battery indicator, a smart bell, and a mobile phone holder are other features which enhance functionality for an urban commuter.

In conclusion, no matter what side of the micro-mobility and e-scooter argument you fall on, the data indicates society needs a viable last-mile alternative to the current transportation options that are congesting and polluting the world’s most populous cities. Time will tell if the best last-mile alternative ends up being e-scooters, dockless bikes, or some new form of transportation yet to hit the streets.

The Miracle is set to redefine short distance commute as we know it, as it is a practical answer to the problems traffic congestion poses for the city, and the people living in it. Commuters can now opt for the smarter, easier and more fun way to cover short distances – whether they have to travel for work, run errands or simply go out for a breath of fresh air.

Change the way you move – and we guarantee it will be the start of a movement to a healthier and more efficient transportation system. So be a part of our Miracle and Ride the Change!
