Why the scooter ?

It is THE convenient and nice way to do distances from 0 to 3 kms. Interesting when you know that 50% of motorists today in the city make a trip of less than ... 3 kms!

The scooter goes two times faster than walking, it is easy to take. It is therefore used for small daily trips, alone or with family (school, shopping, work, ...) and it is also useful in addition to other modes of transport for commuting (train, metro, bus, and by parking your car outside of the city center)

It is also very good for the health : balance, coordination of movements, back, abs, ...

Scooters developed in cities in the end 1990s, when they became lightweight and foldable. Vassili, administrator of Le Grand Huit has been one of the pioneers of the scooter in Paris during the major transport strikes of 1995.
