Beam Joins Petaling Jaya’s Car Free Day

Beam Joins Petaling Jaya’s Car Free Day
  • Beam Joins Petaling Jaya Council’s Folklore Festival
  • Beam introduced Petaling Jaya residents to the benefits of its e-scooters for the first time through educational booths and e-scooter testing space

[3 December 2022] Petaling Jaya is known to have one of the most developed transportation facilities and infrastructure. Their public transport, cycling lanes, and walking paths are purposefully laid out across the city in efforts to reduce cars on the roads and encourage their citizens to live a greener lifestyle. Beam is glad to have been Petaling Jaya City Council’s exclusive shared micromobility partner this year offering our e-scooter rental services since April 2022.

In conjunction with their PJ Folklore Festival which was held from 28 November to 4 December, Beam Mobility was invited to be a part of the Car Free Day - one of the events of this festival. These were held at the premises of Dataran Petaling Jaya where the roads are closed off for the morning and residents are free to ride their zero emission vehicles around the area. Residents of Petaling Jaya were introduced to the e-scooters and safety precautions needed while riding one around the city through their educational booth.

Micromobility may be key to further escalate the transportation improvements in Petaling Jaya and Beam e-scooters can help  hopes to be a part of it. 

“We’re always on a lookout for opportunities to help cities become greener and flow better. We believe that e-scooters can immensely reduce traffic congestion, reduce carbon emissions, and also make your journey a little more fun!”
“We’re also excited to continue our partnership with Petaling Jaya City Council in the year 2023. If you’re keen to have e-scooters in your neighbourhood, voice out to your local Councillors so the city is aware of the community’s needs. We look forward to working closely with all community representatives” added Taty Azman, Head of Public Affairs at Beam Mobility Malaysia.
