Neuron launches e-scooters in Sylvan Lake to support local tourism!
Our safety-first e-scooters are now embraced by six locations in Alberta, providing a valuable boost to local tourism
10 May 2023
We are thrilled to be bringing our safety-first e-scooters to the Town of Sylvan Lake. From May 12, 100 distinctive orange e-scooters will be available to rent to cover key tourism and recreational attractions. We look forward to providing residents and visitors with a safe and environmentally-friendly way to travel, while playing an important role in boosting the local economy.
Elsewhere in Canada, our micromobility programs are proven to replace car trips, reduce congestion and greenhouse gas emissions. According to our report, Shared Rides, Shared Wealth, Neuron is also boosting the economy, with 70% trips resulting in a purchase at a local business. Each Neuron rider contributes an $27 per trip and $11,300 per e-scooter to local businesses across Canada a year.
Neuron partners with the Traffic Injury Research Foundation (TIRF) 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 e-scooters are equipped with a range of pioneering safety innovations including: world’s first integrated helmets; 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.
Riders can book and use the e-scooters through Neuron’s user-friendly app, which can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play and set up in a matter of minutes.
