When students return to sprawling campuses, they often
face a common college issue: parking. No matter how big or small the
institution may be, there never seems to be enough parking, especially
where students are concerned. Fall and spring seasons still net high
temperatures in many areas of the country, so hoofing it hardly seems an
A bike is a good idea if you don’t mind putting in some
physical effort. But if you’re not up for the added exertion and still need to get
clear across campus, you might consider a campus electric scooter.
These scooters are
easy to use, portable and a great investment for years spent traversing campus
spaces. If you remain unconvinced, check out these benefits that might sway
eScooters are environmentally friendly, especially if you generally drive to
get from one point to another. So, you’re not only saving gas but also helping
reduce your carbon footprint. Sustainability has become increasingly important
given climate change, so using an eScooter over your car is your chance to
contribute to the cause.
a Few Bucks
phrase “broke college student” is not a myth. Pinching pennies is a
rite of passage during collegiate years. Chances are if you do have a car, filling
the tank and buying replacement tires are not in your budget. Bikes can be
super expensive these days as well and, with so many bells and whistles, costly
to maintain. An investment in a campus electric scooter is a way to get around
using a reliable form of transportation while still pinching pennies for
late-night pizza runs.
eScooters Are Easy to Store
you are worried about what to do with your scooter when you arrive to class?
This is one of the best parts about eScooters – they are super portable. A good
example of this is the SWAGTRON®
Swagger 5 Elite, which folds up in just three quick steps. You can easily carry
your scooter into class with you, fold it up so it takes up less space on the
bus, and throw it in the trunk of a friend’s car if you get a lift home. If you
don’t want to fold your scooter, feel free to lock it up the same way you would
It really is the ideal solution in terms of how easy it is to take about on
campus — without the hassle of finding that parking space.
Designs Are Super Sleek
might be concerned about pulling up to class on an electric scooter looking
like a tourist on a Segway. Never fear – today’s eScooters look sleek, sophisticated
and stylish. The SWAGTRON®
Swagger 5 Elite comes in all
black with a minimalist design that conveys cool and collected. Nothing
touristy about that. The beauty of such a sleek and sophisticated design is
that you can make of it whatever you want.
a Ton on Rideshares
if you have no problem getting from class to class, chances are you’ll have a
hankering for a late-night snack at some point or want to head to the library
for a study session. If you’ve had a long day, you won’t want to walk. Or
perhaps you want to get together with friends, but their dorms are clear across
is where a rideshare might come in, but let’s face it — that’s a pretty costly
option. Between the cost of the ride and the tip expected at the end, you may
end up busting your budget after just a couple of rides. And if you call during
peak hours, a rideshare can cost a mint. It’s so much easier to hop on your
electric scooter and get where you need to go quickly without relying on Uber.
Scooters Are Easy to Maintain
a busy college student, chances are you have plenty to get done in a day. From
studying for exams and writing papers to keeping your on-campus dorm or
apartment clean, you don’t want to deal with something that takes a lot of work
to maintain. After all, if you had that kind of time and money, you would put
it into a car. An electric scooter is so much easier: wipe it down, charge the
battery and stow it when you are not using it. It really is that simple.
if only it could help you ace that test . . .
