Neuron to launch e-scooters in Yeppoon with a range of cutting-edge safety features!
After a strong track record of partnering with cities and leadership in the safety and innovation space, Neuron has been selected as the sole provider in Yeppoon’s upcoming e-scooter trial.
9 November 2022
We’re thrilled to announce Neuron has been selected to provide e-scooters in Yeppoon as part of a 12-month trial with Livingstone Shire Council. From Thursday, 10 November, up to 150 of our purpose-built e-scooters will be available to ride around the town.
Yeppoon will be the fifth city in Queensland to benefit from our e-scooters, with Neuron already running successful operations in Brisbane, Townsville, Bundaberg and Rockhampton. Elsewhere in Australia, cities are already benefiting from our industry-leading e-scooters, which have been purpose-built to a commercial grade, specifically for renting.
To help get the community up to speed with the riding rules Neuron will be hosting a ‘ScootSafe’ event on Saturday 12, November at Yeppoon Amphitheater from 10am where Safety Ambassadors will be assisting new riders with signing up on Neuron’s user-friendly app, and educating riders on how to park and ride responsibly. Participants who complete the ‘ScootSafe’ briefings will be rewarded with free e-scooter credits for future rides. Those who can not attend in person are encouraged to visit our industry-first interactive, online riding school, ScootSafe Academy for city-specific training materials and free credits towards their next ride.
Safety is our top priority, it dictates our e-scooter design and the way we operate them. Our e-scooters are packed with a range of cutting-edge safety features, including world’s first app-controlled helmet lock that secures a safety helmet to the e-scooter between trips; and a topple detection feature that can detect if an e-scooter has been left on its side which then alerts an operations team to reposition it safely. Other innovations include a 000 emergency button which can tell if someone has had a fall and helps the rider call the emergency services, Voice guidance to educate and warn riders of how to ride safely, and a Follow My Ride function that allows riders to share their trip in real time, for added safety and peace of mind.
