Extra Cleaning for Scooting in Safety

May 14, 2020

There has been a lot of talk about extra cleanings of public transportation such as trains, planes, and buses. But what about alternative forms of transportation? Many cities have set up stations where commuters can rent bicycles and electric scooters. As these bikes and scooters are used by multiple people daily, there is concern they may not be hygienic.

Companies that supply electric scooters to Columbus, Ohio, say they are cleaning them regularly and spraying them with disinfectant, especially the handlebars, Mass Transit reports. The scooter mechanics and operators are regularly washing their hands and wearing gloves as they maintain the scooters.

However, commuters are skeptical the scooter company workers will have time to disinfect the vehicles between each user, so they are wearing masks and gloves when they ride. The local health department recommends that riders wash their hands or use hand sanitizer before and after using a public scooter.
