Neuron’s safety-first e-scooters are coming to Calgary!
Calgary becomes the latest Canadian city to launch our distinctive ‘safety-orange’ e-scooters
29 May 2021
Our 750-strong fleet of safety-first e-scooters will be available to ride on the streets of Calgary starting the first week of June. In partnership with the City of Calgary, Neuron e-scooters will provide Calgarians with a safe, convenient and socially-distanced transport option.
Free morning commutes are extended to all riders during the first month of operation from 5am to 9am on weekdays to support the city’s recovery. While the current Covid-19 restrictions are in place, free monthly passes are also available for Public Health workers and Emergency Service staff, redeemable through the app using an applicable work email address.
Our latest and safest Canadian-spec e-scooters are purpose-built for safety and rental. They are equipped with a range of pioneering safety innovations, including the world’s first app-controlled helmet lock, securing a helmet to every e-scooter in between trips, topple detection, a 911 emergency button, bilingual voice guidance to educate and warn riders on how to ride safely, and a “Follow my Ride” function, and more.
Geofencing technology will control where the e-scooters can be ridden and parked, as well as how fast they can travel in different areas. Each e-scooter will also be fitted with a unique license plate for easy identification and to promote responsible use.
Riders are able to book and use the e-scooters through our app, with trips costing C$1.15 to unlock the e-scooter and 35 cents per minute thereafter. Our frequent users can also purchase Neuron Passes, available in three-day (C$25), weekly (C$33), or monthly (C$89) options. The pass enables users to ride as many times as they want for up to 90 minutes per day, resulting in savings of up to 95%.
