E-bike and e-scooter program starts April 14, 2023!
A new e-scooter and e-bike share program is rolling out in Waterloo Region, starting April 14. In its first year, the program will include up to 500 e-bikes and 500 e-scooters for community members to rent until the end of October.
The Region of Waterloo, along with the Cities of Cambridge, Kitchener and Waterloo, have selected Neuron Mobility to run the e-scooter and e-bike share program. The program will provide a new environmentally sustainable travel choice for residents, help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and encourage active transportation in our community.
Neuron was selected for its strong track record of partnering with cities and its leadership when it comes to safety. All vehicles are equipped with helmets and technology to detect and restrict sidewalk riding.
The first vehicles for community members to use will be located at virtual stations in the downtown areas of Cambridge, Kitchener and Waterloo, and near transit stations. Available vehicles will gradually increase after April 14 and will be stationed in about 150 different locations.
Riders can download Neuron’s mobile app from the App Store or Google Play and get set up to ride in a matter of minutes. The app can also be used to locate available vehicles. For more information on the program, visit www.rideneuron.com/canada.
