Neuron Mobility has announced that residents and visitors of Airdrie now have a new, safe and sustainable way to explore the city, as it has rolled out a fleet of 100 e-scooters to Airdrie streets as of 1 July 2022.

Airdrie is the sixth city in Canada to offer Neuron’s service, joining Ottawa, Calgary, Red Deer, Vernon, and Lethbridge. The micro-mobility company has been selected for its strong track record of partnering with cities, and its commitment when it comes to safety and innovation.

Neuron’s e-scooters are designed with a suite of safety features – they’re visibly bigger and robust. Each e-scooter 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.

In addition, the company sets no-ride zones, no-parking zones and low-speed zones to further improve safety. Voice Guidance also educates riders and delivers instructions for safe riding and parking.

In each city where Neuron operates, the service has made a positive impact on the local economy and environment. In 2021 in Red Deer, 38 per cent of Neuron trips replaced a car journey, and more than half (52 per cent) of riders used the service to commute. In Calgary, 80 per cent use e-scooters to visit restaurants, cafes and to explore the city, while nearly two-thirds (62 per cent) made a purchase from a local business during their trip.

Riders will be able to book and use the operator’s vehicles through Neuron’s user-friendly app, which can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play and set up in minutes.
