EKSPH Members Lends Electric Kick Scooters to PGH Healthcare Workers
Electric Kick Scooter Philippines (EKSPH) together with the Department of Transportation (DOTr) Road Sector, launched the “Lend-a-scooter” campaign last March 26, 2020. The campaign is targeted for health workers of the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) for their transportation needs.
The campaign aims to flatten the curve of the novel coronavirus while being able to help our heroes that are in the frontline of this pandemic.
How electric kick scooters help aid in transportation amidst COVID-19
Electric Kick Scooters (EKS) helps people keep their distance from each other while traveling during the novel coronavirus pandemic. It also allows EKS users to follow social distancing while being able to reach their destination safely and with less exposure to the virus.
Aside from being alone in the vehicle, if another rider is nearby, simply slow down or increase speed to keep your distance. A great fit for the current transportation and personal space needs by the frontliners.
Additional benefits of electric kick scooters are zero carbon emissions and low noise pollution, making it environment friendly.
Electric Kick Scooter Philippines (EKSPH) was founded in November 2016 by Erwin Buencamino and Tim Vargas. EKSPH is the biggest and leading community of Electric Kick Scooters in the Philippines with more than 13,500 members as of March 2020, nationwide.
The organization manages the majority of the industry from Government Regulation, Distribution, Market Supply and Demand, Community, Charity, Events, Market demographics, and socioeconomics.
