Kirstin Butler and John Seddon decided to check out the new e-scooters in Lethbridge on the moment’s spontaneity. Despite the cold, Butler said they had a great time.
“People were pointing and laughing at us as we were ripping around the park,” she claimed. “We were having a great time – it brought out our inner children.”
Butler said that the procedure was straightforward and user-friendly. “It was really clear, and the instructions were extremely clear, basic, and straightforward. “I felt it was a lot of fun.”
Ankush Karwal is Neuron Mobility’s regional manager and head of marketing for Canada. He described the response to the e-scooters and e-bikes as “fantastic.”
“The reception we’ve gotten from the community in Lethbridge has been fantastic,” he added. “It’s just been around two weeks, but we had representatives from the city and local businesses show their support when we debuted.”
As of April 22, more than 6,500 Lethbridge rides have been completed, totaling more than 13,000 kilometers traveled.
“We like to wait a little while to see how the patterns stabilize,” Karwal said, noting that it’s still early in the program.
The scooters and bikes are being rolled out in phases, with usage determining when the next step is rolled out.
“We ride our scooters and e-bikes through the west (and) south, covering roughly 47 square kilometers,” Karwal said.
Butler said they had no concerns about the procedure but would want to see more cleaning alternatives in the future.
“I’m just a germaphobe,” she explained, “so I washed out the helmet before putting it on.” “It would be nice if there were separate wipes or something to wipe clean the helmet and handlebars with, but other than that, it was incredibly easy to use.”
In the future, the business plans to offer some educational activities to assist customers to feel more at ease while scooting around the city.
