Neuron’s safety-first e-scooters have landed in Oshawa!
The first of our 250 e-scooters will be gradually rolled out, covering key areas of the city’s neighbourhood
25 April 2023
We have been selected by the City of Oshawa to launch the Durham Region’s first e-scooter program. From April 25, the first of our 250 safety-first e-scooters, which are equipped with the industry’s most advanced e-scooter technology, will be gradually rolled out throughout the year to cover key areas of the neighbourhood.
Neuron partners with the Traffic Injury Research Foundation to promote e-scooter safety and research in Canada. 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.
Neuron’s selection in the city follows a strong track record of partnering with cities, and our leadership and commitment to safety and innovation. Oshawa becomes Neuron’s eleventh Canadian city and sixth in Ontario, following recent launches in the Greater Toronto Area, including Brampton and the Region of Waterloo. Neuron will invest significantly into the city, creating approximately 20 permanent and temporary jobs which will be recruited locally.
Riders will also benefit from a range of cutting-edge safety features including: world’s first integrated helmets; voice guidance; topple detection; a 911 emergency button which detects if a rider has had a fall and then helps them call the emergency services via their smartphone, and a ‘Follow my Ride’ function for added peace of mind. Advanced geofencing technology will also control where e-scooters are ridden and parked, and how fast they can travel in certain areas.
To ride a Neuron, simply unlock and use the e-scooters through our user-friendly app, which can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play and set up in a matter of minutes.
