E-scooters are a fun, eco-friendly way to cruise the coast of Adelaide’s West in a novel way
The Western Alliance of Councils City of Port Adelaide Enfield, City of Charles Sturt and the City of West Torrens has provided two operators with a permit to run an e-scooter share program along a 16 km section of Coast Park from Outer Harbor to West Beach.
E-scooter schemes operate in several cities in Australia. The e-scooters, operated along the Adelaide Coastal region by Beam and Neuron, are unlocked using a smartphone app and are fitted with GPS tracking so that users and the operator can find them.
The e-scooters will be operating for a 6 month trial from 4 September 2020 until the 7 February 2021 at this stage.
To ride an e-scooter, you will need to be at least 18 years old.
Simply download the Beam or Neuron app to your mobile device and then create an account. As part of the account set-up you'll receive information about responsible riding and public safety while operating and riding the e-scooters.
When you're ready, use the app to locate and unlock e-scooters. E-scooters are available daily from 6am-9pm.
