The company will start deploying e-scooters at key commercial spots in Cyberjaya as part of a pilot programme.

Southeast Asia’s leading e-scooter service, Neuron Mobility, has launched its e-scooter sharing services in Malaysia as part of the company’s regional expansion plans.

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.

Neuron Mobility owns and operates the largest e-scooter sharing fleet in Singapore and Thailand, and will start deploying the e-scooters at key commercial spots in Cyberjaya as part of a pilot programme to assess feasibility and demand in the Multimedia Super Corridor of Malaysia.

“At the heart of Neuron Mobility’s growth is our goal to improve personal mobility in cities,” Neuron Mobility CEO Zachary Wang said.

“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,” Wang added.

The company 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.

“Cities are becoming both bigger and smarter, and new cities like Cyberjaya offer a unique opportunity for companies to develop intelligent infrastructure from the ground up,” Wang said.

“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.”

Neuron Mobility emphasises heavily on building a sustainable platform to drive growth in smart city initiatives by further funding the development of technologies which will culminate in the imminent launch of their own commercial grade e-scooter, a world first, to enhance robustness and rider safety while complying with PMD laws across Southeast Asia.

Beyond Malaysia, the company has also set its sights on other major cities in the region.

The launch comes on the heels of a partnership with Thailand’s Sansiri Public Company Limited, and follows a recent S$5 million raise to expand their last mile connectivity services to Asia Pacific’s biggest and most congested cities.
