10 February 2022
Neuron has been selected to provide e-scooters in Rockhampton as part of a 12-month trial with Rockhampton Regional Council. From the end of February, 300 of Neuron’s purpose-built e-scooters will be available to ride in the city with a range of cutting-edge safety features.
Rockhampton will be the fourth city in Queensland to benefit from our industry-leading e-scooters, with successful operations already running in Brisbane, Townsville and Bundaberg. Our selection in the city follows a strong track record of partnering with councils and will continue to boost the local economy by creating approximately 25 jobs, recruited locally.
Riders will benefit from a range of pioneering safety innovations including: the world’s first app-controlled helmet lock which secures a helmet to every e-scooter in between trips; topple detection; a 000 emergency button; voice guidance to educate and warn riders on how to ride safely; and a ‘Follow my Ride’ function. Geofencing technology will also be used to control where e-scooters can be ridden and parked, and how fast they can travel.
Riders will also benefit from Neuron’s third party rider liability insurance for e-scooters, in a move to protect and reassure riders as well as the wider community. The provision of third party rider liability insurance goes well beyond what is required by law and further demonstrates Neuron’s commitment to operating in the safest, most responsible way.
