Recently I bought an electric scooter and I like it, is a great device. Before buying it, I used to go to the job by bike, as I don't like public transport. Now, I can say that the scooter is better than the bike as you do not have to put much effort into riding it. Since I have the scooter it is easier to get to the job. If you are interested in an electrical scooter I can recommend the one that I have, the glion dolly scooter. It has decent acceleration, the speed is around 16 miles per hour and is easy to carry in public places. I hope my experience may be useful to you, too.
