Micromobility operator, Beam has launched a fleet of 150 seated e-scooters in Canberra, Australia.
This project marks the first time that seated e-scooters have been deployed in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT).
The seated models are equipped with the same safety features as Beam’s standing e-scooters, including triple brakes, phone holders, a Bluetooth helmet lock and dual front suspension.
They aim to improve accessibility for those who find standing e-scooters and pedal-assist e-bikes challenging to use. In addition, seated e-scooters provide a practical choice for those travelling longer distances across Canberra.
“As Australia’s largest shared micromobility operator, we’re committed to constantly innovating and bringing the latest technology and hardware to our operations across the state.
“Canberra has experienced great success with shared micromobility, which has become a preferred means of transportation for many Canberrans, and seen over 2.8 million kilometres ridden on Beams across Canberra to date. However, they have not been accessible to all members of the local community, which is a gap we are looking to address with the launch of seated e-scooters across the city.”
