Drained & exhausted from having to walk in scorching hot KL? ☀️☀️☀️
Worry no more!
Now you could opt for e-Scooter, Beam to scoot around KL landmarks & Bukit Bintang area 😎
Beam e-Scooter was brought in by ex-Uber exec Alan Jiang, who is currently the CEO of Beam, which was launched back in July 2018.
Alan has a background in expanding transportation options with his previous role at ofo where he led the APAC operations and also played a key role in launching Uber across Asia in countries such as China, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Vietnam.
According to VulcanPost, Christopher Hilton, VP of Corporate Affairs for Beam saw that there is a high demand for mobility options in Malaysia, and added that the business will be a success as they will have strong operations and support staff to ensure that e-scooters will be successful on the ground.
Beam e-scooters are already ready for users to use around KL in the Bukit Bintang and Jalan Raja Chulan areas, and users just need to download the Beam app to locate, unlock, and then ride it. 🛴
Start Beam-ing now by following these simple steps:
- Download Beam App – available on iOS and Android
- Follow the setup instructions and find the nearest scooter
- Jump on and enjoy the ride!
It costs RM2.50 to unlock the e-scooter and RM0.30 for every minute of riding.
Here are some reviews from Beam user on Facebook:
We personally think this is a brilliant alternative to scoot around KL and we do hope Beam team would come out with a package with cheaper price to get more people to try Beam 🙂
The best part is you could park your e-Scooter conveniently anywhere after renting it as the staff will track it from their device & return it back to closest Beam pickup point.
Yay to this hassle-free alternative! 💪🏻💪🏻
