Beam and Neuron Mobility are the new scooters and bikes in town
Whether you simply cannot stomach the surging Uber prices, enjoy feeling the wind in your face or you just want to take a walk – or ride, rather – on the wild side, e-scooters offer a convenient and cost-effective mode of transportation. Our streets are set to see an influx of new rides as Beam and Neuron Mobility brings its scooters and bikes to town.
Hold on to your helmets, friends – e-bikes are set to join Brisbane’s shared e-scooter program this July, with Brisbane City Council announcing this week that operators Neuron Mobility and Beam have been awarded three-year contracts following a competitive tender process. The two companies have been awarded contracts for both e-bikes and e-scooters with 800 electric bicycles and 2000 electric scooters to be let loose around the city from Thursday July 22.
The e-bikes and e-scooters, which were selected for their top-of-the-line safety features and state-of-the-art technology, will replace council’s CityCycle scheme and as well as the popular green Lime e-scooters across the city (goodnight, sweet prince). Instead, we will now be greeted with a rainbow wheel of purple and orange-hued two-wheelers from New Farm to South Brisbane. Ready to scoot-toot-toot around town? Remember to pop on a helmet when these bad boys launch next month.
