  • Reflection Question
    Transport Test Drive an Electric Bike
    Half of all trips made in the US are three miles or less; 72% of them are driven. Private vehicles account for 60% of trips of a mile or less. Do you feel that these facts apply to you? If so, how might you incorporate an electric bike into your lifestyle?

    I do not live in the US. Now in Taiwan electric bikes are very  popular, which can cut down the CO2 emission and  reduce the noises.
