Commuting to work can be stressful and costly. But there are plenty of ways to make it fun and at the same time to save money. Here are 5 alternative ways to commute to work in the city, that not only can make your day exciting, but also save you some cash and time.
This one is my personal favorite, not only because it is maneuverable and fast, but it is quite fun to use, too. It will also help you save money on commuting. There are foldable electric skateboards which are pretty practical. After using the device, simply fold it and put it in your backpack. That’s it. You can carry it on with you everywhere. Actually, you can bring it with you even on the airplane (this is completely legal). Electric skateboards have a 6 – 12 miles range and top speed up to 22 mph.
Cycling is another option. It’s been an alternative way for commuting for many years now. This is completely understandable, considering its cost-saving and health benefits. If you have a long commute, electric bicycles are the better choice, though. They can give you a break when you are tired. When you need to rest, just switch to the electric motor. You could even take it with you when using public transportation. E-bikes are a great solution for the so-called “last mile”. They have 30-50 mile range from one battery charge and top speed up to 30 mph.
Many people are starting to realize riding electric scooters to work has some serious benefits. They are affordable and fun. Besides, you can choose from a great range of electric scooters. They are equipped with handlebars and hand brakes. They are easy to handle. Also, there are foldable models. With a starting price at around $100, they are really affordable.
If you are not far from work, you could consider walking. You will avoid traffic jams, won’t spend any money on transportation and you will become healthier. Even if you have to walk a couple of miles, it won’t be an issue. You will be able to get in the right mood for doing your job later or to relax on your way back, after a long, busy day.
Using this option will help you avoid driving every day. It is not only good for your wallet, but also for the environment (having fewer cars on the road means improved air quality). Carpooling works best for people who live in places where transit service is limited.
There are a lot of commuting options, as you can see. You can choose the one that fits you best, based on your budget and fitness level. The options listed above will help you save money, reduce stress and have more fun on your way to and from work.
