Segways, solowheels, electric scooters… New ways of getting about just keep on popping up on our streets and have an undoubted role to play in the intermodality of the daily commute. Centred on the experience they offer, this workshop will help familiarise you with these machines.

Why
Increasingly these days, we are seeing these unusual means of transport in the street, especially in our cities. But there’s a lot we don’t know about them, concerning their place on the road, insurance requirements, additional equipment, training and how best to interact with them. All of these aspects currently tend to raise more questions than answers… What’s more, you can’t always try these often costly devices before deciding whether to buy, so with this activity, we’re seeking to offer a response to these issues and to fill the information void.

Results
Participants can try out different travel devices and assess whether they represent a viable solution for (a part of) their commute. They will receive useful advice on correct usage and on the right reactions to adopt when interacting with these forms of transport.
