Neuron launches e-scooters and e-bikes in the Region of Waterloo!
The first of our safety-first e-scooters and e-bikes will be gradually rolled out, covering key areas of the region’s neighbourhood
15 April 2023
We have been selected by the Region of Waterloo to launch Canada’s largest single operator micromobility program. Beginning today, the first of our 500 safety-first e-scooters and 500 e-bikes will be gradually rolled out throughout the year to cover key areas of the neighbourhood including Uptown Waterloo, Victoria Park and Galt areas.
Neuron partners with the Traffic Injury Research Foundation to promote e-scooter safety and research in Canada. Users can visit our online riding school, ScootSafe Academy, for their local riding rules and earn free credits for future rides. Our Safety Ambassadors will also be out in greater numbers during the launch period to equip new riders with the confidence to safely ride and park our vehicles.
Neuron’s selection in the city follows a strong track record of partnering with cities, and our leadership and commitment to safety and innovation. The cities of Kitchener, Cambridge and Waterloo will bring the number of Neuron’s Canadian cities to 11 and six in Ontario, following recent announcements in the Greater Toronto Area, including Brampton and Oshawa.
Riders will also benefit from a range of pioneering safety innovations including: world’s first integrated helmets (it is legal requirement to wear a helmet); voice guidance; topple detection; a 911 emergency button, and a ‘Follow my Ride’ function for added peace of mind. Advanced geofencing technology will also control where e-scooters are ridden and parked, and how fast they can travel in certain areas.
To ride a Neuron, simply unlock and use the e-scooters through our user-friendly app, which can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play and set up in a matter of minutes.
