What are Commuter Scooters?

A commuter scooter is a purpose-built scooter for travelling. And because of this, a various number of scooters can fall under this category including electric scooters and adult kick scooters.

If you are looking for a convenient and economical mode of transport to travel short distances, a commuter scooter is something you should consider. Gone are the day’s scooters are used just for leisure by kids and teens. Scooters have taken on bikes, and even cars, to get to and from work.

With inner-city living rising and peak traffic conditions worsening, Adults are on the lookout for an efficient and quick way to get from point A to B.

Enter the era of Commuter Scooters. An alternative to riding the bus and using a bicycle, scooters are now built for adults with the main purpose of commuting. It’s becoming a popular option for young professionals living in the inner-city suburbs and for anyone wanting to save money on short distance travels.

Kids can also enjoy them alongside childrens bikes


Standard Push/ Kick Scooters vs Commuter Scooters


If you’re in market for a scooter to get you from A to B, you might ask yourself, “Why not just buy a standard kick scooter?”. A valid question, but first you need to consider the use of the scooter. Standard kick scooters are often referred to as the scooters you used to ride when you were a kid or teenager. Sure, they can be used for commuting but it may not be the most durable or provide the most comfort when compared to commuter scooters. Most kick scooters are designed for kids or teenagers so they aren’t designed for daily use by a full-grown adult.

Commuter Scooters will generally have bigger, durable wheels and look much larger than your standard push scooter. This is because bigger wheels get further faster and offer a more comfortable ride.

Electric scooters are widely used as commuter scooters over your standard kick scooters because they are able to cover larger distances without exhausting too much effort. They also will last longer. Although they are priced much higher than normal scooters, they tend to give back their value over time.


Ensure a Safe Ride When Commuting on a Scooter

 Scooter Safety is the biggest concern when it comes to commuting to and from destinations. Depending on the laws in your area, you may need to share the road with other motor vehicles. To make sure your safety is the number one priority when riding a scooter make sure to follow these simple guidelines.

  • Familiarise yourself with the road rules - Read up on the dos and don’ts of your local road rules.
  • Wear the appropriate safety gear - Always wear a helmet, and wear appropriate clothing when riding. You don’t want to wear any loose pieces of clothing that can get cough in the wheels or other objects passing through.
  • Watch out for any obstacles - Be vigilant about what’s happening in front of you. Be sure to avoid any big potholes or objects that can cause you to lose control of your scooter.
  • Stay Aware - Be aware of your surroundings and other vehicles and pedestrians. 
  • Make sure your scooter is in working condition - This might seem obvious but make sure you’re not riding a faulty commuter scooter
