Currently, the use of electric scooters has expanded throughout the country, becoming one of the most commonly used modes of transportation, especially for convenient city travel. That’s why it wouldn’t be crazy to install an electric scooter parking in your mall.
Reasons to install an electric scooter parking
Next, we will name and explain some of the main reasons why you should install an electric scooter parking in your mall or leisure complex.
1. Supports mobility
The electric scooter seems like an ideal solution to promote sustainable mobility.
Improving the experience of people who visit and shop at your mall should be a priority. As mentioned earlier, the use of transportation like electric scooters is on the rise in Spain. Therefore, it would be a good idea to differentiate yourself from other mall by installing a parking area specifically designed for this type of transport. This space would not only securely store the scooter but also provide free recharging while customers enjoy their shopping experience.
2. Enhances coexistence.
It is quite common for issues to arise between customers moving through the mall peacefully and electric scooter users. Drawing a conclusion from all this, it is not allowed to ride scooters in the shopping center.
To prevent issues such as collisions, many shopping centers have designated areas for parking electric scooters.
3. Reduces CO2 emissions.
Today, environmental protection has become one of the main concerns of citizens. With these parking spaces, we are helping to improve CO2 levels on the planet. In addition, governmental institutions are promoting and supporting measures to encourage environmental commitment from businesses.

Many times, electric scooters are found parked in areas that hinder customer traffic and, moreover, aesthetically clutter the environment.
To establish good mobility within the mall, it is necessary to install electric scooter parking zones where they can be more organized, contributing to a cleaner aesthetic environment.
5. It will serve as a reference
The installation of these parking spaces will position the shopping center as a benchmark and encourage other mall to adopt similar changes, as well as other companies in different sectors.

The commitment to reduce the carbon footprint through the installation of electric scooter parking has led marketing executives to incorporate sustainability and environmental policies, promoting the use of personal mobility vehicles and sustainable transportation.
7. Modernize your shopping mall
By implementing these types of electric scooter parking spaces, it will be evident that your shopping mall is up-to-date and responsive to the new trends and needs of customers.
