Shared micromobility operator Neuron will expand into its fifth Canadian city next month with e-scooter and e-bike fleets in Lethbridge.
The Alberta city will join Ottawa, Calgary, Red Deer and Vernon in offering Neuron micromobility devices for hire, with an initial 500 e-scooters and 100 e-bikes set to be rolled out in April.
Neuron e-scooters and e-bikes feature a range of cutting-edge safety features, including an app-controlled Helmet Lock that secures a safety helmet to every device.
Each e-scooter and e-bike is GPS-connected and managed by geofencing technology that controls where they can be ridden and parked, and at what speed they can travel in different areas.
Neuron sets no-ride zones, no-parking zones and low-speed zones to further improve safety, while Voice Guidance educates riders and delivers instructions for safe riding and parking.
Riders will be able to book devices through the Neuron app and single trips will cost C$1.15 to unlock and 35c per minute thereafter.
More frequent users will have the option to purchase Neuron Passes, a subscription service available in three-day, weekly or monthly options.
Founded in 2016, the Singapore-based firm currently operates e-scooters and e-bikes in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea and the UK.
