Most of our staff fleet cars are hybrid, but we are about to trial two electric “Vespa type” scooters that a local start up GGo will be using for their ride sharing program. The scooters are parked in a custom ‘garage’ installed in the car park behind our main administration office in central Fremantle.
The reasons we are helping with this trial are to:
• Reduce fleet car fuel usage. If it is assumed that these scooters get 75% of the use of the average fleet car, it will save a total of $1,400 of fuel over the trial.
• Reduced ‘wear and tear’ and maintenance on current fleet vehicles.
• Opportunity to trial a more environmentally friendly, low carbon transport option.
• Detailed usage statistics will be made available as a part of the trial which will be useful in assessing future options.
GGo are a local Fremantle start up, so this aligns with our One Planet and Economic Development principles and objectives (think local – act global).
Here’s a video of staff getting a go on the scooters.
