Neuron to stay in Vernon following e-scooter and e-bike sharing program extension!

The City of Vernon will be extending the Neuron e-scooter and e-bike sharing program until 2024

We are delighted to announce that our distinctive orange e-scooters and e-bikes will remain in Vernon following a contract extension from the City of Vernon. The contract, which was previously slated to conclude in April 2023, has been extended to April 2024. 

Since launching in July 2021, our vehicles have been embraced by the community, providing a safe and convenient way for locals and tourists to get around. In May 2022, with e-scooters proving to be a popular mode of transport, e-bikes were added to the Vernon fleet and the e-scooter fleet was increased to 350 to meet demand. To date, our riders in Vernon have racked up over 400,000 kilometers, thereby eliminating an estimated 25 tonnes of CO2 emissions by providing an alternative to short car trips.  

We have also seen a range of benefits since our e-scooters and e-bikes were introduced, from helping tourists explore the city, to extending the range of locals so they can further support local businesses. Our rider surveys have shown that over half of Neuron rides resulted in a purchase at a business, providing a boost to local businesses in Vernon.

We look forward to continuing to support the city to scoot to their favourite local spots in a safe, convenient and fun way!
