Mearth donates e-scooters to healthcare workers

Electric scooter manufacturer Mearth has donated dozens of electric scooters to NSW healthcare workers in a bid to help ease their commute to and from work.

Mearth X and Mearth X Pro electric scooters have been distributed to nurses and essential workers in hospitals like Macquarie University Hospital, Meditech Staffing, Mater Hospital Sydney, Royal North Shore and Royal Prince Alfred Hospital.

“Healthcare workers can benefit greatly from the convenience that electric scooters bring, especially now more than ever,” Mearth owner Ming YE said.

“Mearth electric scooters help them practise better social distancing and ease up their travel worries. With some of them completing up to 12-hour shifts and only taking public transport, this is a big help.”

With strict regulations surrounding the use of electric scooters in NSW, the company is also looking to reach out to healthcare workers located in Queensland where electric scooter regulations fare better. Mearth is currently updating their inventory to make it possible to donate to more hospitals.

While electric scooter ride-sharing companies have pulled the plug in several cities worldwide, manufacturers like Mearth see a rise in demand. The importance of personal electric scooters and electric bikes is now becoming more obvious, because they’re convenient and easy to use for quick errands. They don’t take up parking spaces, making them workable alternatives to cars.
