Top Electric Scooters for the College Commute: 2023 Guide

February 28, 2024

Embarking on a college journey comes with the excitement of new classes, friends, and the daily campus commute. For the eco-conscious and savvy student, electric scooters offer a blend of convenience, speed, and sustainability. To navigate busy sidewalks and cycle lanes, it's crucial to choose a scooter that's reliable, has good battery life, and is portable. Here are our top picks for electric scooters ideal for college students in 2023.

Best Overall: Inokim Light 2

With its sleek design and robust performance, the Inokim Light 2 is perfect for zipping between classes. Its foldable frame is a plus for storage in cramped dorm rooms or apartment spaces.

Budget-Friendly: Levy Electric Scooter

The Levy Electric Scooter offers a balance of price and performance. It's an excellent choice for students watching their expenses without skimping on quality.

Long-Range Commute: Segway Ninebot Max

For those with a longer trek across campus, the Segway Ninebot Max's extended range is a game-changer, ensuring you can make it to class and back on a single charge.

Portable Pick: GOTRAX GXL Commuter v2

For students on the go, the GOTRAX GXL Commuter v2's lightweight frame and quick-folding capability make it ideal for quick commutes and easy carrying.

These scooters cater to various needs, from quick jaunts across campus to longer, more leisurely rides. Remember to consider factors like weight, speed, range, and cost when choosing the right scooter for your college commute. Safety gear is also a must, so gear up with a helmet and stay safe on your rides!
