Neuron Mobility, an e-scooter sharing service based in Southeast Asia, announced today that it officially started operations in Malaysia. It is a part of the company’s regional expansion plans.
The launch comes just after a partnership with Thailand’s Sansiri Public Company Limited, and follows a recent S$5 million raise to expand their last mile connectivity services — particularly to Asia-Pacific’s biggest and most congested cities.
In Malaysia, Neuron Mobility will deploy the e-scooter fleet at key commercial spots in Cyberjaya as part of a pilot programme. The company said that it’s to ensure feasibility and demand in the Multimedia Super Corridor of Malaysia.
“Cyberjaya is on its way to becoming Malaysia’s smartest city, and we are glad to be able to contribute towards this goal by solving the issues of last mile mobility,” said Zachary Wang, CEO of Neuron Mobility.
Neuron Mobility uses real-time telematics and geospatial simulation models for predictive analytics and network optimisation. First-time riders are required to go through an instructional series on safety before they start using the service.
The launch in Cyberjaya makes it the fourth major Southeast Asian city to offer Neuron’s personal mobility service, after Singapore, Bangkok, and Chiang Mai.
To date, Neuron Mobility claims to own and operate the largest e-scooter sharing fleet in Singapore and Thailand.
“Smart transportation is not just an alternative, to some it may soon become the de-facto choice for urban commutes. It is our vision to build reliable technologies to answer the need for personal mobility in these populated zones,” added Zachary.
Neuron Mobility has shared that its core focus now is to drive growth in smart city initiatives by further funding the development of technologies. Eventually, it will lead the company to launch its own commercial grade e-scooter that would be a world first.
The plan is to produce scooter that enhances robustness and rider safety while complying with PMD laws across Southeast Asia.
