[16 Nov 2023] Beam Mobility Malaysia has commenced operations in Johor Bahru, in support of Johor Bahru City Council’s (MBJB) Low Carbon City initiatives. . This initiative aligns with Beam's commitment to providing convenient and sustainable transportation options for urban communities. To commemorate this meaningful event , Beam Mobility participated in Johor Bahru’s Car Free Morning in conjunction with the Asia Pacific Climate Week (APCW) that happened last Saturday (Nov 11).
The proposed parking spots aim to solve the first and last mile qualms for the residents of Johor Bahru. Positioned at the heart of the town, the new Beam parking spots cater to both tourists and residents alike, offering a more convenient form of transportation and reducing traffic in the town.
Lucas Yap, Country Lead at Beam Mobility Malaysia, expressed enthusiasm about the expansion, stating, "We're thrilled to be expanding our services to Johor Bahru. Our mission is to provide sustainable and convenient transportation solutions to as many people as possible, and we're excited to work with MBJB to achieve their low carbon goals."
Beam Mobility's e-scooters are designed with safety in mind, featuring advanced safety features such as built-in lights, dual-braking systems, and virtual docking (virtual parking spots) created to keep the streets clean and neat. The company also works closely with local authorities to ensure that its services are integrated seamlessly into the city’s environment.
“The key to all of these is to improve the public transport system and blend in the micromobility in the mix to make JB into a more walkable city." - Dato' Haji, Mohd Noorazam bin Dato' Haji Osman, Datuk Bandar Johor Bahru.
In conjunction with the launch, Beam Mobility was honoured to participate in Johor Bahru’s Car Free Morning, coinciding with the Asia Pacific Climate Week 2023 event. To commemorate these events, from now until 30th November 2023:
As MBJB continues to spearhead their sustainability efforts in Johor Bahru, Beam Mobility is optimistic that the e-scooters can escalate their low carbon goals.
