How Electric Scooters Can Help Canadians During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The electric scooter is expected to be one of Canada’s fastest-growing trends in 2020, especially in major cities like Toronto. With the recent COVID-19 or Coronavirus pandemic, changes in the way we commute and the amazing benefits that electric scooters offer, we strongly believe it is the best time to get an electric scooter for yourself!


The recent Coronavirus outbreak has radically shifted the Toronto commute daily. Common ways of commute, such as the Subway, TTC and Uber have become less safe.  As Canada's cases rocket past 11,000 and we continue to see an increase in new cases worldwide, electric scooters can be seen as one of the best alternatives to get around during this pandemic. They can help you with social distancing, make it easy to pick up groceries, food and needed supplies, and are a much more effective tool of commuting with reduced risk of exposure.

How Electric Scooters Can Be Helpful During This Crisis?

Social Distancing by Commuting Safer and Better

We’ve heard the phrases. Keep at least six feet (or two meters) away from others. Maintain social distancing. We all need to contribute to help solve this crisis, and electric scooters are one easy way to adhere to the social distancing guidelines. Electric scooter is a solitary exercise that keeps you safely distant from other people and things that other people might have touched as studies have shown Coronavirus can live for a while on many surfaces. 


When you look at other common ways of commuting in Toronto, it’s easy to see how electric scooters stand out. It’s much better than taking public transportation, especially with the number of people going in and out and a higher chance of having a TTC delay or Go Train delay. 


Compared to walking, it’s faster, more convenient and minimizes the amount of time you are in one place, which can reduce the chance of infection. Even compared to biking, electric scooters are more convenient and flexible to get to where you want to go, without having to expend large amounts of energy, which helps you and your immune system to prepare and build resilience.

Makes it easy to get groceries, food and supplies

Having an electric scooter can also make it easy and convenient for you to get much-needed food and supplies without all the hassle, especially if you don’t have access to a car. Electric scooters, especially the ones sold by TekTrendy, are extremely durable and made from the industry leaders. Their high-performance capabilities make it extremely easy for you to get from point A to point B, and you can simply roll your scooter inside the store to pick up your needed items. Another option is to fold your scooter easily and carry it around with you. 


As an added benefit, we know how hard this Coronavirus has hit the local businesses. So by using an electric scooter, it also makes it easy to support your local business by easily being able to pick up take-out from your favourite restaurant and scoot back to your home with ease (and of course, following the appropriate social distancing protocols).


Final thoughts

Coronavirus is a very serious matter and we all need to do our part to ensure that we take care of ourselves, our families and friends and keep social distance to help reduce the rate of infection. With many of the traditional transportations no longer being a good alternative, we think using an electric scooter is the best way to commute in Toronto.
