How to transform urban mobility?


The European population still predominantly relies on private vehicles for mobility, with 50% using them daily, while public transport and bicycles are utilized by only 16% and 12%, respectively according to independent reaserch.

As a result, daily commuting contributes significantly to about 25% of CO2 emissions in Europe. Beyond the health implications resulting from excessive pollution, the extensive use of cars impacts the average commuting time across Europe. According to Eurostat, the average commute time in the EU was approximately 25 minutes, with nearly 27% of commuters spending between 30 to 60 minutes daily and around 9% taking over an hour to reach their desired destinations. Considering this data, the transition towards greener means of commuting that facilitate swift, efficient and specially ergonomic transportation should be the imperative approach for cities across the continent.
Cities are actively seeking their distinctive approaches to address this issue. An ideal scenario involves a diverse range of transportation options, providing commuters with multiple choices. By integrating public transportation with eco-friendly alternatives like electric bicycles and scooters, cities have the potential to substantially decrease congestion and commuting time, provided that well-planned infrastructure is in place.

That is one of the many reasons why we created jCharge, to mitigate the chaos and congestion caused by cars in dense urban environments. Our stations if implemented correctly can encourage people to switch from a regular car to an electric scooter, thanks to the ease of use.
