Micromobility

Micromobility explores the disruption to urban transport that comes from new electric, lightweight utility vehicles. Using the history of computing as a framework, we unpack how e-bikes, scooters and more will change how people get around cities.

17: On Vandalism

January 16, 2019 at 3:00PM • 54 minutes • Wiki Entry

On today's show, Horace and Oliver talk through the challenges that vandalism pose to the shared micromobility model.

Specifically we cover:
- the core drivers of vandalism of such fleets, and how this compares to historical parallels.
- the implications for capex vs. opex
- the calculations that operators are making to ensure that the services still function well.

Apologies about the echo in the podcast. We ran into audio issues.
