Neuron to launch e-scooters in Busselton with a range of cutting-edge safety features!

Under a 12-month trial, Busselton is set to become the second city in Western Australia to benefit from Neuron’s safety-first e-scooters.

Our distinctive orange e-scooters are coming to Busselton, as part of a 12-month trial in partnership with Busselton City Council. Set to launch on Thursday 15 December the city’s first e-scooter program will see up to 250 e-scooters gradually rolled out across the city centre and surrounding suburbs including Geographe, West Busselton, Brodwater and Abbey. The riding area will also extend along the Dunsborough Coastal Path and into Dunsborough City Centre.

We’re thrilled to be selected as the exclusive operator, after a strong track record of partnering with councils and proven leadership in the safety and innovation space. The recent announcement makes Busselton the second city in Western Australia to benefit from our industry leading e-scooters, after launching in the City of Stirling earlier this year (February 2022). Elsewhere in Australia, our e-scooter programmes are helping to reduce car use and congestion, improve air quality, as well as boost the local economy. The programme is set to create approximately 20 jobs in Busselton recruited locally, and increase economic activity with our national report, Shared Rides, Shared Wealth, finding two in three e-scooter journeys result in a purchase with a local business. 

Safety remains at the heart of everything we do. Riders in Wollongong will benefit from visibly larger 12” wheels, wider footplates and an app-controlled Helmet Lock and Geofencing technology to control where e-scooters are ridden and parked, and how fast they can travel in certain areas. Other features include a topple detection, a 000 emergency button; voice guidance and a Follow My Ride feature.

Riders will be able to unlock and use the e-scooters through Neuron’s user-friendly app, which can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play.
