Neuron e-scooters have landed in Sunderland!
The trial builds on our recent Newcastle launch to provide travellers between the two cities an environmentally-friendly option at both ends of their journey
31 March 2021
In partnership with Sunderland City Council, the first of our 300 safety-first e-scooters have arrived in Sunderland to provide a safe, sustainable and socially distanced way to travel around the city.
Riders in Sunderland will benefit from a range of world-first safety features on Neuron’s latest N3 e-scooters, which have been purpose-built for safety and renting. The e-scooters feature the world’s first app-controlled helmet lock, geofencing control, as well as a 999 emergency button, voice guidance and topple detection.
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 20 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 during 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.
