Replacing short car trips with bike and scooter trips can lead to less congestion

A study from Carnegie Mellon University zeroes in on how micromibility – namely e-bikes – can affect congestion, finding that if even 10% of short car trips during peak afternoon travel were replaced with micromobility, more than 4,800 car trips would not happen, decreasing vehicle miles traveled by more than 7,300 miles a day, a 2.76 reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
