Neuron e-scooters have arrived in Newcastle!
Newcastle becomes the latest UK city to launch our distinctive orange e-scooters
16 February 2021
An initial 250-strong fleet of our safety-first e-scooters have arrived on Newcastle’s streets. The trial, which is being operated in partnership with Newcastle City Council, will provide a safe, sustainable and socially distanced way to travel around the city.
Riders in Newcastle will benefit from Neuron’s latest N3 e-scooters which have been purpose-built for safety and renting. They will launch with a range of world-first safety features and pioneering innovations including: our app-controlled helmet lock, geofencing control, a 999 emergency button, voice guidance, topple detection and a “Follow my Ride” function.
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%.
Free passes are also available for NHS and Emergency Service workers throughout the lockdown, redeemable through the app, as well as free rides for all commuters during the first three months of the trial between 5am-9am every weekday.
