Time to put on those training wheels

  • Here’s a ticket to ride — safely! In a first for the mobility industry, 500-backed startup Neuron Mobility launched ScootSafe Academy, an interactive, online riding school that will help educate riders on safety, and deliver training for those who have broken the rules!
  • Developed with national road safety partners, riders can access city-specific content through the Neuron App or via the website. The school offers city-specific educational videos, quizzes, and even games to improve e-scooter and e-bike safety.
  • Topics range from responsible parking, safe conduct, dos and don’ts when riding with Neuron, and more. And here’s a sweet bonus: students will receive free credits for future rides!
  • The academy is a digital extension of the company’s popular in-person #ScootSafe events, which trained thousands of people at 108 events worldwide last year.
