Neuron Mobility has announced that it has been selected by the City of Brampton to participate in the Greater Toronto Area’s first shared e-scooter programme. As of 3 April 2023, the company has rolled out an initial fleet of 250 safety-first e-scooters.

The scheme will cover key areas of the neighbourhood, including downtown Brampton, Gateway Terminal transit station, Sheridan College, Bramalea City Centre, Chinguacousy Park and Brampton city centre.

In collaboration with the Traffic Injury Research Foundation, the micro-mobility operator aims to promote e-scooter safety and research in Canada. The company’s online riding school, ScootSafe Academy, offers users access to its local riding rules and free credits for future rides. During the launch period, Safety Ambassadors will also be on hand to help new riders safely operate and park the e-scooters.

The City of Brampton will be Neuron’s second launch location in Ontario and the seventh city in Canada. According to the company’s report, Shared Rides, Shared Wealth, each Neuron e-scooter enables spending of $11,300 at local businesses per year, while reducing car use, congestion and improving air quality.

The fleet will feature High Accuracy Location Technology (HALT) and Rapid Geofence Detection (RGD) capabilities to detect and control pavement riding. Riders must follow local parking guidelines and secure their e-scooters onto poles or frames using the vehicle lock in order to end their trip.

In addition to innovative geofencing technology, Neuron’s pioneering safety features include world-first integrated helmets, voice guidance, topple detection, a 911 emergency button and a ‘Follow my Ride’ function for added peace of mind.
