by Anne Das

Ipoh has always been known for its food, culture, and heritage sites, but now there’s a new way to explore the city that’s making waves – e-scooters. You might have noticed some purple e-scooters zooming past you on the streets recently. These are Beam e-scooters, the latest addition to the city’s transportation options.

Beam is a global micro-mobility company that provides shared e-scooters in Southeast Asia and Australia. With a growing number of users, the service is now available in Riverfront, Taman Dr. Seenivasagam Recreational Park, and the Old Town area.

So, what’s the deal with these e-scooters? Well, they are not your ordinary scooters. They are electric, which means they run on batteries and don’t emit any harmful gases. They are also smart, which means they have GPS, lights, brakes, and a mobile app that lets you find, unlock, and pay for them. They are also fun, which means they can go up to 25 km/h and make you feel like a kid again.

But e-scooters are not just about fun. They are also about sustainability and convenience. By using an e-scooter instead of a car or a motorcycle, you can help reduce traffic congestion and carbon emissions in the city. According to Beam, using an e-scooter can save up to 90% of greenhouse gas emissions compared to cars or motorcycles. You can also save time and money by avoiding parking fees, fuel costs, and public transportation fares.

These e-scooters are also about accessibility and community. Beam has partnered with nine universities across Malaysia, including University Technology Mara (UiTM) in Perak, to offer their service on campus. This means students and teachers can easily hop on and off an e-scooter to travel between buildings, facilities, and nearby amenities. Beam also offers discounts and promotions for university students and staff.

Committed to ensuring the safety and sustainability of their operations, they have invested in new technology that allows councils unprecedented control over city spaces and drives safer usage of vehicles by riders. They also have a dedicated team of local staff who ensure the scooters are well-maintained and properly parked. With 24/7 customer support service that can be reached via phone, email, or chat and welcome feedback from the public in Ipoh.
