City of Darwin expands micromobility services to Waterfront Precinct

Darwin City Council

City of Darwin, in collaboration with Darwin Waterfront Corporation and Beam, is excited to announce the expansion of Beam’s micromobility offerings to the Darwin Waterfront Precinct.

This initiative will increase the availability of Beam’s e-scooters, e-bikes, and seated e-scooters beyond the Darwin city centre, enhancing transportation options for tourists and locals.

Lord Mayor Kon Vatskalis said the expanded footprint was great news for locals as well as visitors.

“We are pleased to have worked with the Darwin Waterfront Corporation and Beam to expand the range of micromobility vehicles from beyond our city centre to the Waterfront Precinct,” he said.

“Our Movement Strategy aims to make it easier for people to move around the city by improving streetscapes, infrastructure and connectivity, and this expansion helps us to achieve that goal.

“It is great news for cruise ship passengers arriving at the Waterfront, as they will now a convenient, eco-friendly way to explore and commute within our beautiful city.

“The introduction of micromobility vehicles to the Waterfront Precinct is part of a broader strategy to improve urban mobility, reduce traffic congestion and promote sustainable transport solutions in Darwin,” Mr Vatskalis said.

Since Beam launched in Darwin in 2023, over one third of riders have used Beams to travel to and from local businesses, with eight out of 10 trips involving a purchase. More than half of riders said they have used their cars less, as a result of access to shared e-scooters and e-bikes.

Electric vehicles are available in the Darwin Waterfront Precinct now.
