ALBANY, Calif., May 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Electric Scooter Guide (electric-scooter.guide) ("ESG"), the internet's leading source of information about electric scooters, announced the #EssentialScooters campaign, in which it will give one electric scooter each to 30 essential workers throughout the United States. The scooters were donated by leading electric scooter retailers including Fluid Freerides, Gotrax, Voromotors, Apollo Scooters, Revrides, and ESG itself.
"All over the world, mass transit systems have reduced or even stopped service. Shared mobility and ride shares have come to a grinding halt, and taxis are expensive, if you can even find one," said ESG co-founder Chuck Temple. "As we get into the warmer months even bikes are simply not an option for many. We believe electric scooters are key, as they enable essential workers to quickly and easily get around their cities while maintaining social distance. Also, they're just a lot of fun to ride."

- The campaign will run from May 12th to May 19th via Instagram.
- All U.S. essential workers age 18+ are eligible to participate.
"We know this is a drop in the bucket compared to the overall need of essential workers," acknowledges Temple, "but we hope this small gesture from the electric scooter community will have a positive impact on the lives of at least a few essential workers. It's our community's way of saying 'thank you' to them."
