Most people wake up, get ready for the day, then hop in their car, hop on the subway, or hop on a bus to get to work. A person driving a car may have to stop and get gas, causing them to get stuck in a rush-hour traffic jam and make them late. If they are riding public transportation, it would more than likely be crowded, stinky, and dirty. These are ways to get to work, but it isn't the best way to get there.
An electric bike, on the other hand, can get the person where they need to go without any of the hassles of the other means of transportation. There are no traffic jams, no dirty seats, no stinky busses, and no crowded subways. Electric bikes have many pros if you ride them to work instead of public transportation or automobiles.
Electric bikes are just that — electric! There is no gas required... just the occasional charging of the bike's battery is all it needs to keep going. The average price for a gallon of gas currently sits at around $2.41. That means that the average person will spend around $250 a month on gas and around $3,000 if they switch completely to an electric bike instead of a vehicle. With savings like those, you would have enough money to vacation to Hawaii!
Not to mention that owning a vehicle also means the cost of insurance, paying it off, and repairs when necessary.
"I don't have a car, I use public transportation."
If you don't have a vehicle and use public transportation to get around instead, you can still save a good chunk of cash by switching to an e-bike! The average person spends anywhere from $435 to $1,000 each month to get around. By simply switching to an electric bike, you can help cut down costs immensely.
Since public transportation is always crowded, smelly, and never clean, you will be doing yourself a favor as well by using a cleaner way to commute.
No matter where you live, an e-bike is a great choice for transportation. If you want to go to the grocery store for a few things, take your e-bike instead! Commuting to work? Ride your e-bike with pedal assist and get there with no sweat. As electric bikes emit no carbon monoxide like cars and busses, this alternative is also better for the environment!
Wherever you want to go, an e-bike is the way to go — just don't forget your helmet!
