We are wrapping up another successful shared e-scooter riding season in Ottawa, with the last day of service set for November 15. We thank the City of Ottawa, all city stakeholders and our riders for embracing Neuron as the city’s e-scooter program continues to grow in popularity.
This season, Ottawa was the first city in the world to implement Neuron’s new ‘e-scooter brain’ across an entire e-scooter fleet, helping them better integrate into the city. It enabled us to provide high accuracy geofencing, precise smart parking locations and better detection and control of sidewalk riding.
To date, our riders in the capital city have travelled over 330,000 kilometres since our launch in 2021. With 41% of Neuron trips replacing a car journey, 22 tonnes of CO2 emissions have been avoided. In fact, 95% of our riders surveyed in Ottawa believe Neuron has benefited their city and also improved mobility, air quality and congestion.
Neuron is also committed to partnering with Business Improvement Areas and has had an economic impact in Ottawa. Seven out of 10 trips resulted in a purchase at a local business which amounts to an estimated $2 million spent each year. For a more detailed look at how Neuron e-scooters are helping drive the local economy, check out our 2022 Canada Prosperity Report.
Thank you to the City of Ottawa, our business partners, and riders for another successful riding season!
