Scooters are very popular all over the county, and their use keeps growing over time. If you are interested in accommodating scooter parking on your property, we put together a couple of ideas that will help you do just that in a way that meets your residents' need.
Different Properties Require Different Solutions
Many factors can influence the decision to install scooter parking, but there is no question that just having the type of property that can accommodate it is one of the most important. Here are some ideas for your property.
Paint a designated scooter parking on the floor
This is a very easy solution for scooter parking. All you need to do is paint a designated area on the floor. Residents might not realize that there is a parking space on-site, but Arlington Transportation Partners (ATP) can create a custom communication campaign that will put the new amenity on your residents' radar.
Setting up a scooter rack is another easy solution to help your property maintain good scooter etiquette. This option is best for garden-style properties or high rises.
The most important thing to keep in mind when installing a scooter rack is that where you choose to install it is key to its success. The closer you set it up to the entrance of your property, the more likely your residents will be to use it. If you decide to move forward with this option, Dero has a very good-looking scooter rack.
Floor mat with signage
While accommodating scooters in a way that fits your budget might seem challenging, the truth is that it's not. Simply placing a floor mat on the property to indicate that scooters can park there will create the space while making it easy for your residents to find it when needed. Also, Arlington County scooter operators can help implement this solution.
Scooter charging station
The ultimate solution, which your residents will appreciate, is installing a scooter charging station on site. Your residents will not only know where to leave the scooter after using them, but they will also have one available and charged every time they want to take another trip. Regardless of where your scooter-riding residents are commuting, having a charging station will be a great addition. Also, some charging stations allow transit information on the same station.
