Purple E-scooters are returning to the Adelaide region

Adelaide, September 4th  -  Beam, the largest micromobility operator in Asia-Pacific, is back in Adelaide and rolling out along the Beach. Beam, will be a part of the Adelaide Coastal Park Trial that allows riders to take a Beam while they ride up and down the coast. 

“We are excited to be back in Adelaide and bringing our e-scooters to the Coastal Park Area. Our focus will be to ensure every ride adds to the local community experience and we enhance the atmosphere of Adelaide’s coastal path,” said Beam’s Director of Expansion Tom Cooper. 

Beam e-scooters can be found at many of the identified virtual parking locations between Beach and Grange, and Semaphore and  North Haven.

The Beam offering will include:

  • Helmets For All for Safer Rides: Every Beam e-scooter in will be equipped with a Beam helmet and a Bluetooth enabled smart helmet lock, ensuring riders always have a helmet for every ride. These helmets will be treated with an innovative cleaning treatment that provides long-term hygiene benefits and will help to encourage riders to wear them.

  • Virtual Docking For Cleaner Streets: At Beam, we believe that the future of micromobility is docked rather than dockless. But a docked system does not require hardware racks fitted on the pavements. Fixed parking docks can be created virtually, using technology and GPS to direct riders to appropriate parking spots through a combination of guidance, incentives, and disincentives.
  • Climate Neutral Operations For A Greener City: A long-term goal for Beam has always been to contribute to the cause of tackling climate change. For our operations, through the end of 2019, we have achieved Climate Neutral Certified status by measuring our entire greenhouse gas emissions footprint, purchasing carbon credits to offset that footprint, and implementing plans to reduce emissions this year and beyond. In Asia-Pacific, this makes us the only micromobility operator to be independently certified as climate neutral.

  • Beam Booster for Retail Recovery: Over recent months we have developed a unique program designed to assist local shops, restaurants and cafes in the cities which we operate in as they strive to reinvigorate their businesses after the easing of COVID-19 conditions. Named ‘Operation Booster’, Beam’s proprietary partnership platform utilises a blend of GPS-technology, in-app notifications and partner incentives to help stimulate economic activity at the local community level.


Across all the Costal Councils Beam will work with local stakeholders to gradually introduce our vehicle to the streets, provide ongoing safety and safe riding information and training and roll out additional features to support our operations.
