Well this is just nasty!! During a recent study, researchers found that the amount of bacteria covering public transportation, including e-bike and e-scooters, has a thousands times more germs than your average toilet. Seriously, that’s disgusting!!
The study reveals that a public electric bike carries 12,000 times the bacteria of a toilet seat and 800 times more bacteria than someone’s personal electric bike.
While riding a public e-bike may be more common in some cities, riding a public electric scooter appears to be even worse for your health. Bacteria tests reveal that the average public e-scooter carries 700 times the bacteria of a personal electric scooter. That’s 58,000 times more bacteria than what’s sitting on a toilet seat. So the next time you jump on a e-bike or e-scooter to ride around the Tampa Bay area, you might want to wipe it out first! [Source: Study Finds]
