The expansion will make it easier than ever before for Brisbanites to choose micromobility for their journey and connect to other modes of transport.

Brisbane’s shared micromobility programme with Neuron e-scooters and e-bikes will be rolled out in two new trial areas across across Greenslopes and Holland Park West, and Bulimba and Hawthorne. The expansion is set to support Brisbane City Council and the Queensland Government’s ‘first and last mile’ trial, making it easier than ever before for Brisbanites to choose micromobility for their journey and connect to other modes of transport such as busway stations or ferry terminals.
Since launching on the streets of Brisbane in August 2019, Neuron riders have travelled more than eight million kilometres in the city. The expansion is set to be welcomed by businesses within the new riding area, with a recent rider survey finding that 66% of Neuron rides result in a purchase at a local business, boosting the local economy. The service expansion will also create 15 new locally sourced jobs.
Neuron e-scooters are fitted with a range of cutting-edge safety features. These include an app-controlled helmet lock that secures a safety helmet to the e-scooter between trips; and a topple detection feature that can detect if an e-scooter has been left on its side which then alerts an operations team to reposition it safely. Other innovations include a 000 emergency button which can tell if someone has had a fall and helps the rider call the emergency services, Voice guidance to educate and warn riders of how to ride safely, and a ‘Follow My Ride’ function that allows riders to share their trip with friends and family in real time, for added safety and peace of mind.
Our e-scooters and e-bikes have cemented themselves as an important and popular part of the transport mix and we look forward to being able to reach more people in the suburbs.
