E-scooters have arrived in Slough!

Slough’s e-scooter rental trial gets underway today, with 250 bright orange vehicles being deployed across the town. In partnership with Slough Borough Council, Neuron will provide the town with a clean, green and socially-distanced way to travel.
Working closely with the Council, geofencing technology is used to control the riding area and create dedicated parking zones and no-go zones in specific areas across the town to improve safety. All parking stations are highlighted in the app and also marked on the ground for visibility, users will have to scan a QR-code to end their trip.
Riders will be able to enjoy our impressive range of world-first safety features and pioneering innovations, which include: the world’s first app-controlled helmet lock which secures a helmet to every e-scooter in between trips; topple detection; a 999 emergency button; voice guidance to educate and warn riders on how to ride safely; a “Follow my Ride” function; and more to come in the pipeline.
Riders, who are over 18 and hold a full or provisional driving licence, are able to book and use the e-scooters through our app, with trips costing £1 to unlock the e-scooter and 18 pence per minute thereafter. Our frequent users can also purchase Neuron Passes, available in three-day (£15), weekly (£22), or monthly (£36) options. With this option riders can ride as many times as they want for up to 90 minutes per day, resulting in savings of up to 90%.
