[30 November 2021] Leading micromobility company Beam has brought its popular e-scooters to more areas of Brisbane, following popular demand.
Beam’s industry-leading e-scooters will now be available for use in Sandgate, Wynnum and Manly, improving transport options and connections along the coast ahead of the busy summer season.
With the expansion of Beam’s operations, an increased number of residents can also now take advantage of Beam’s e-scooters, with data showing increasingly longer rides and a growing reliance on micromobility as a form of regular transport.
Beam’s data shows riders increasingly utilising Beam’s service for commutes, showing regular adoption of micromobility for everyday life.
Beam General Manager ANZ Tom Cooper said:
“We have seen e-scooters take off in popularity and become increasingly entrenched in the daily life of Brisbane’s residents - be it commuting to and from places of work and education, running errands and visiting restaurants. They have also been popular as a great way to explore the city.
“We’re pleased to be able to make this expansion to benefit both residents and visitors to Brisbane’s coastal suburbs.
“There are great recreational e-scooter routes along the coast that we envision being popular particularly on the weekends, but there’s also great potential for micromobility to aid in increased connectivity for residents to travel to and from shops and places of work, study and play, similar to what we’ve seen in inner-city Brisbane.
“We’re thrilled to see Brisbane’s support of e-mobility, and look forward to working collaboratively with the local council to bring access to more residents.”
