Why You Shouldn't Be Riding Public Electric Scooters and E-Bikes - GOTRAX

People aren't often thinking of the cleanliness of the rental electric scooters and e-bikes that litter the streets when they are not in use. In a recent study, researchers have found that rental e-bikes can carry up to 12,000 times the amount of bacteria on a toilet seat. Rental electric scooters are worse off having over 58,000 times the bacteria found sitting on a toilet. Being used multiple times a day, from multiple people creates a perfect place for germs to stay. Unless people carry their own wet wipes, hand sanitizing, or other disinfectant then no one is cleaning off the handlebars or other points of contact.
