Neuron e-scooters have landed in Christchurch!
Christchurch is our latest New Zealand city to host Neuron’s e-scooters, joining the successes of Auckland, Dunedin and Hamilton.
1 October 2021
In partnership with Christchurch City Council, our safety-first e-scooters will hit the city’s streets starting 1 October, with e-bikes to follow later in the year. The permit will allow us to operate a total of 800 e-scooters and 200 e-bikes.
Our latest and safest N3 e-scooters are purpose-built for safety and rental. They are equipped with a range of pioneering safety innovations, including the world’s first app-controlled helmet lock, securing a helmet to every e-scooter in between trips; geofencing control; topple detection; a 111 emergency button; voice guidance to educate and warn riders on how to ride safely; and a “Follow my Ride” function, and more.
To mark the occasion, we are launching in Christchurch with 50% off weekday rides from 1-14 October. Riders are able to book and use the e-scooters through our app, with trips costing 50c to unlock (usually NZ$1) and 22c per minute thereafter (usually 45c).
In October, Neuron Passes will also be heavily discounted, and are available in daily ($6.99 down from $9.99), three-day ($9.99 down from $14.99), weekly ($14.99 down from $19.99) or monthly ($30 down from $45) options. The pass enables users to ride as many times as they want for up to 90 minutes per day, resulting in savings of up to 96%.
Safety is at the heart of everything we do, and that is why we are New Zealand’s first — and only — operator to provide third party rider liability insurance for e-scooters and e-bikes. Hop onto our e-scooters for the safe, convenient and environmentally-friendly way to travel today!
