Neuron to launch e-scooters in Wollongong with a range of cutting-edge safety features!
With a strong track record of partnering with cities and leadership in the safety and innovation space, Neuron has been selected to provide e-scooters in Wollongong
8 September 2023
We’re thrilled to announce that Neuron has been selected to provide e-scooters in Wollongong as part of a 12-month trial with Wollongong City Council. The trial will launch with an initial 300 safety-first e-scooters on Friday, September 29.
Wollongong locals and visitors will be able to access shared paths as well as local roads and on road bicycle lanes within the riding area. The area will cover parts of the city centre as well as North Wollongong, Keiraville and Woonona and extend as far North as Sandon Point. Riders will also be able to access key Wollongong destinations including Wollongong University, WIN Sports and Entertainment Centre, Stuart Park and many of the city’s coastal beaches.
Safety remains at the heart of everything we do. Riders in Wollongong will benefit from visibly larger 11.5” 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.
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 at key areas of the city to equip new riders with the confidence to safely ride and park our vehicles.
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.
