Micro mobility refers to any human or electric-powered form of transportation capable of speeds up to, but not exceeding, 25 miles per hour. This includes walking, biking, skating, scooting, or any other form of PLEV usage. eBikes and eScooters are classified as PLEVs, or Personal Light Electric Vehicles. Other examples of PLEVs on campus are hoverboards, Segways, and any motorized, wheeled form of micro mobility (i.e., smaller than a car).
Micro mobility plays a key role in adapting cities to be more sustainable in the long run by addressing many of the issues caused by traditional cars. Whereas gas powered vehicles cause air pollution through the emission of greenhouse gases, human or electric-powered forms of transportation emit nothing. Taking alternative forms of transportation also solves many issues caused by traffic and parking.
You can contribute to Making Orange Green by using alternative forms of transportation whenever possible. Learn more about biking on campus here.
