Non-users of the Beryl e-scooter programme in Sandown and Shanklin on the UK’s Isle of Wight can report any safety or parking concerns by scanning a QR code on any vehicle.
UK micro-mobility provider Beryl has teamed with London-based software platform Captur to help members of the public report any e-scooter safety or parking concerns.
The partnership will allow non-users of the newly launched scheme in the Isle of Wight’s resorts of Sandown and Shanklin to flag safety or parking concerns about Beryl e-scooters directly to operational teams sited there.
To do so, non-riders need to scan the QR code on any vehicle, take a photo, and submit.
“As we expand our scheme on the Isle of Wight into Sandown and Shanklin today, we’re taking another step to ensure our e-scooters are convenient for riders, pedestrians and other road users,” said Philip Ellis, CEO of Beryl.
“It’s clear members of the public want more convenient travel options, but they also really care about the impact on their local community and the environment”
“Due to our innovative geo-fenced and lined bays, 95 per cent of journeys end in one, and we want to improve that further through our partnership with Captur.”
The expansion of Beryl’s existing scheme will see an increase in the overall fleet of e-scooters across the island of an additional 25 e-scooters. There are 19 new bay locations in Shanklin and Sandown, which are live, and can be found in the Beryl app.
The bays have been chosen in full consultation with Isle of Wight Council, Island Roads, Hampshire Constabulary, and Solent Transport. Beryl, which claims to be the UK’s only certified B Corp micromobility operator, continues to work with community groups across the Isle of Wight, to ensure the scheme works for everyone.
“It’s clear members of the public want more convenient travel options, but they also really care about the impact on their local community and the environment. Now is the time to work together to make sure the e-scooters work for everyone and are here to stay,” added Charlotte Bax, CEO and founder, Captur
‘’That’s why Captur has partnered with Beryl and will automatically donate to Sight for Wight [charity for the visually impaired] each time a report is submitted from a member of the public.”
