Anyone here use some kind of skateboard type thing as a serious means of transpo? The distance I have to cover is just 2-3 miles more or less. I don't think it's much. I'm debating between a penny board(pic related) which costs 60 USD and a kickscooter that costs nearly 160 USD. Where I live, the sidewalks can be pretty shit and I don't really trust any drivers on the street to ride on the road 90% of the time, so the scooter may be better with shittier terrain since the kind I'm getting has bigger wheels. On the other hand, it's 160 USD for something that I view as pretty disposable. But I do have more experience riding a kickscooter than riding any kind of skateboard. I used to ride a skateboard for transportation before so I probably can learn it again. My issue is about the terrain I guess. Would it be worth it to pay more and have a more assured method of transportation or should I save money and learn whatever I can to make things work?

Note that maybe some days I'll opt to also use the bus along with the board/scooter to get around if I need to.

/trolley/ - Trolleybus thread

No.1210629 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
Let's have a thread about the best bus: The trolleybus.

Jokes aside, I was recently thinking how come in the 50's-60's so many cities around the world suddenly got trolleybuses, but then they died out again all of a sudden. Why was that? Why were trolleybuses so popular only for such a very short time?

Are trolleybuses still a good transit option? Are battery buses superior? Or is it actually advantageous to have electric buses that don't depend on batteries?

Talk about new trolleybus systems or extensions of existing systems. Which cities still have trolleybuses, and which cities still care for them instead of letting them slowly die out?
Also talk about past systems.


Pic related is the first trolleybus that ran in Shanghai, which has the oldest continually operating trolleybus system in the world. It started operations in 1917, and is now 101 years old, the only trolleybus system in the world that's a century old.
