Neuron launches safety-first e-bikes in Christchurch!

Neuron will begin rolling out 150 e-bikes across Christchurch, offering greater access to safe and sustainable transport options

Neuron e-bikes will launch on the streets of Christchurch from Friday 25 February. The arrival is set to complement our existing e-scooter programme, offering riders a multi-modal choice of transport based on their preference and length of trip. 

The introduction of Neuron’s EB-1 e-bike to the city gives locals and tourists greater access to sustainable transport options, reducing the reliance on cars for short journeys. Riders taking a longer trips may opt for our pedal-assisted e-bikes over our e-scooters, with the option to travel along dedicated bike lanes and low speed roads. 

Neuron e-bikes are GPS-connected and geofenced to control where they can be ridden and parked, as well as how fast they can travel. Riders will benefit from the same cutting-edge safety features brought over from our e-scooter technology, including the world’s first app-controlled helmet-lock that secures to the e-bike in between trips; topple detection; 111 emergency button; voice guidance to educate and warn riders on how to ride safely; and ‘Follow my Ride’ function. There are a large number of convenient incentivised parking stations across the operating area for both e-bikes and e-scooters. 

Riders will be able to book and use the e-bikes 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. Single trips will cost $1 to unlock the e-bike and 45 cents per minute thereafter. More frequent users have the option to purchase Neuron Passes, a subscription service valid for both e-bikes and e-scooters. They are available in daily, three-day), weekly or monthly  options. The packages will allow users to ride as many times as they want for up to 90 minutes per day for a fixed affordable price. This will result in no additional unlocking fees and savings of up to 96%.
