If I had to put my money down, I'd say e-bikes, especially fairly rugged all purpose bikes, are the future, along with small Vespa like e-scooters. Bike sharing seems to have seen it's time, too.

the scooters are still here in SA. The tourist love them. City council has put more restrictions. i don't believe Bird made the cut but there's plenty of companies that want to join the fun.
