Nearly all cities provide a small lane adjacent to streets for E-Bikes and cyclist, as well as small yellow boxes that serve as charging stations. E-Bikes can also range from anywhere between 1,300 and 4,000rmb, or about $200 to $700, and last several good years or more. Doesn’t that sound great?
On one hand, the majority of American cities are not built like China.
Streets are often wider, or longer. Highways are intertwined throughout downtowns and are a necessity to get from point A to B. Buildings and offices are spread out, rather than stacked in a bunch. And the list goes on.
The bottom line—in America, you pretty much need a car.
