Neuron partners with the Australian Road Safety Foundation to further improve e-scooter safety!
We are partnering with the Australian Road Safety Foundation (ARSF) to promote best practice for rental e-scooter safety across the country.

Safety is at the heart of everything we do at Neuron and the ARSF partnership will help us further lead the way in best practice for rental e-scooter safety. The non-profit road safety organisation has been at the heart of accident prevention in Australia since 2010.
As part of the partnership, ARSF will provide us with advice on our safety training materials for e-scooter riders, conduct safety training sessions for Neuron’s staff, and also review and evaluate our e-scooter incident data in Australia so we can continue making our service as safe as possible.
We’re widely regarded as the e-scooter industry’s safety leaders having already introduced a number of innovations to help keep riders safe. These include 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; a “Follow my Ride” function; and, of course, we pioneered the use of geofencing technology to control where e-scooters can be ridden and parked, and how fast they can travel.
ARSF is the perfect partner for Neuron as we work towards a common goal of educating e-scooter riders to keep them safe and reduce accidents as much as possible.
