Can normal vehicle co-exist with micro mobility vehicles?

It is obvious that cars and buses dominate the roads definitely but the trends in the transportation sector are changing rapidly. The passengers are showing a change in taste in the way they commute. As developments in autonomous vehicles, flying cars, and hyperloop technology progress, there is a new trend evolving quickly in the urban mobility industry: Micro-vehicles. At present, 54% of the world’s population resides in the urban areas and the projections show that by the year 2050, another 2.5 billion will add to that list. With this being said, one can only imagine how difficult commuting can become when it has to accommodate and serve such a huge population. Normal vehicles like cars and buses do not seem to be very tangible in the long run and hence the idea of micro mobility and micro vehicles is taking over the transportation sector. But, with that, the question that comes to mind is does that mean the end of normal vehicles is approaching its end with the introduction of micro vehicles?

The answer is not just a plain yes or no. It is a bit complicated and let us simplify that for you. If you closely observe, currently there are definitely more cars and buses on the road, however, the vehicles that are privately owned are comparatively much lesser than it was 10 to 15 years back. The reason for this change is the introduction of Shuttle vehicles. You can just rent or book a cab if you need a ride at cheaper rates and the necessity to buy a car is reduced tremendously. Owning a car yet again has become a luxury today and the future generations seem to be moving ahead with the idea of renting or booking a vehicle for the journey. But this issue also comes at a cost. The micro vehicles do not run on petroleum fuels and hence avoids causing pollution. Not just that, the micro vehicles can easily withstand the heavy congestion on roads and helps the passengers commute smoothly even in tough situations when the normal vehicles like cars and public transits fail. We can make the world a better place by making the right decisions. To entirely eliminate normal vehicles may not be a very great idea. For longer distances, the normal vehicles look like the appropriate choice, however for the first mile and last mile commute, instead of relying on cars, you can easily commute using the micro vehicles. It will not only help the environment but significantly reduce your expenditure.

Introducing micro mobility vehicles for the sake of commute does not mean the end of normal vehicles definitely. Heavy vehicles also have a huge role to play in the transportation sector. Micro vehicles are the solution to the problems that the normal vehicles do not have at hand. While a journey in a car may be smoother, the micro vehicles also are smoother and serve even better in cities which are heavily congested. While the rest of the world has welcomed these micro mobility vehicles at their home, Yulu has brought this trend in India.
