5 Ways the URB-E Electric Scooter Solves L.A. Rams ParkingThe Los Angeles Rams have returned to California after 22 years in St. Louis. Playing in the Coliseum at USC for the next 2 years until their stadium in Inglewood opens up, they can seat more than 90,000 people for each game. And in the first game since they returned to L.A., over 20,000 of those fans came to the game using the Los Angeles Metro. But getting to the Metro is not easy for most riders: this is where an electric scooter comes in handy. And in particular, a foldable electric scooter that complements the Metro and large events like a Rams game. The URB-E is the perfect companion to L.A. Rams games. Below we compile the top 5 reasons why the URB-E foldable electric scooter is perfect for beating L.A. Rams parking nightmares.
1- The URB-E Electric Scooter gets you to the MetroURB-E is the ideal tool for a Los Angeles Metro rider. A major difficulty in expanding Los Angeles Metro adoption is that few potential riders live within a comfortable walking distance of the Metro. This is commonly referred to as the Last-Mile Problem. The URB-E electric scooter comfortably carries you to your Metro stop and then to the Coliseum once you get off the Metro. If in the past you had to walk 40 minutes to get to a stop 2 miles away, a 15 mph electric scooter can get you there in 8 minutes. That makes the journey entirely less stressful, and a lot more fun!
2- The URB-E fits Perfectly on the MetroAnd once you arrive at the Metro station, you can easily lift the 35 pound URB-E to get it down to the train platform, where it folds to slide onto the train alongside you. The URB-E takes up no more room than a young child, and is perfect for the crowded game-day Metro. As an added bonus, the URB-E can charge your phone on the go, so you can save battery for pictures at the game and calling friends or family to meet up in the game-day chaos.
3- The URB-E Locks up Securely and EasilyOnce you arrive at the Coliseum, you just need to lock your URB-E at a bike rack near the stadium. The URB-E folds to take up less space than a bike, and holds strong in any weather. With an aircraft-grade aluminum body, you can loop a bike lock right through the frame to guarantee your folding electric scooter will be there when you return. URB-E promotes the Abus Folding Lock, which is flexible while promising to keep your vehicle secure until after the game.

4- The URB-E Eliminates Exorbitant Parking FeesL.A. Rams parking has been and will be incredibly pricey, fetching over $1,000 for some fans and parking prices commonly in the hundreds of dollars. This is on top of L.A.'s notorious traffic problems, which are made worse by big events. So by driving to a Rams game you will pay for gas used sitting in traffic before and after the game, on top of paying incredible fees for parking within a mile of the stadium. With an URB-E electric scooter and the Metro, you can glide right to the nearest bike rack and avoid the gas, waiting, and emissions.
