Dunedin appoints Neuron as sole e-scooter operator under new permit!

Our current fleet will double in strength to 500 distinctive orange e-scooters starting next month

Neuron will be partnering with Dunedin City Council to operate an expanded fleet of 500 safety-first e-scooters from July 1. As part of the new permit, this increased capacity will enable us to better serve Dunedin’s residents as the city’s sole e-scooter operator. 

Safety is at the heart of everything we do. In May 2021, we launched New Zealand’s first and only third party rider liability insurance for e-scooters, in a move to protect our riders and the wider community. We also announced a partnership with national road safety charity Brake in April 2021.  

To coincide with Brake’s Road Safety Week, Neuron teamed up with local disability advocacy group Access for All to organise a specialised #ScootSafe course at Otago Polytechnic. Users were reminded to ride and park an e-scooter safely and responsibly, ensuring that our city streets are accessible to all, especially for people with disabilities.

Our N3 e-scooters are purpose-built for rental and safety. They have visibly larger, 11.5” wheels and are equipped with a range of cutting-edge safety features including the world’s first app-controlled helmet lock which secures a helmet to every e-scooter; topple detection; a 111 emergency button; voice guidance to educate and warn riders on how to ride safely; a “Follow my Ride” function and many more innovations to come!
