Rockhampton Regional Council has endorsed the continued use of E-scooters across the city.

Following on from a 12-month trial, the economic, environment and social impacts of the scooters was assessed and evaluated with councillors today deciding to keep the scooters rolling.

To date over 25,000 riders have used the Neuron E-Scooters, travelling over 410,000 kilometres with approximately 176,000 trips taken.

Mayor Tony Williams has welcomed the announcement, with the 300 Neuron E-Scooters offering a safe, sustainable, affordable, and convenient transport option for both residents and visitors.

“With a Ride Zone covering our iconic attractions including the Rockhampton Museum of Art, The Botanic Gardens and Zoo, the Visitor Information Centre and Riverside Precinct, our city is even more accessible,” Mayor Williams said.
